Greenwich Substation

Recommended Posts

Here's a little bit of a "sneak peak" inside a real IND substation (one of the newer ones), enjoy...

 

first, a pic of the old rotary converters...these are 60 cycle machines not like the big open clunkers from the early IRT days...this is what this particular substation would have looked like several years ago.

Place looks fun!

 

Pot heads... that's what we call a certain type of terminated junction box where I come from, but I guess the term is universal around here.

 

So... when can you get me down there? :cool:

Cool.

 

Most of the substations look like every other building, but in fact house this stuff inside.

Yup that's correct. They are pretty non descript looking. This one is actually landmarked, so when they rebuilt it from rotary converters to the modern rectifiers they had to be careful to maintain the building's outward appearance.
