Avenue H, Brooklyn...

This sign was in a discarded position in the weeds next to the stairway to the tracks. I did not notice that there were two painted out letters on it until I processed the file with Photomatix.

 

This station house is a land marked building of historical interest. NYCT has recently rebuilt the Avenue H station (I have not seen it yet), but the station house is to be restored as well as possible.

Thank you for the pictures.  The Brighton line was kind of my old stomping grounds a long long time ago.   Kind of a change at Stillwell Av with the new trainshed there. Also I hear the Carnarsie line is a one man operation with the automation. 

          Nathans are the best hot dogs.   Thou Hebrew National from any street vendor(with onions, sauerkraut and mustard) are a close second.

Thx IGN

The Canarsie is indeed an automated operation, and is set up for OPTO, but there are still conductors working the doors at least in the day times.

NOW YOU SEE IT:

NOW IT IS FOULING THE TRACK:

I tried to flag the train but I was on the opposite platform filled with people. I stood facing the oncoming train giving a proper stop signal, but it took him a while to see me, and he did apply brakes, but not in emergency. I pointed to the obstruction, and then he put the train in emergency but hit the metal sign which was draped over the third rail and the running rail, but only with his lead truck.  The T/O thanked me for the signal and went on his way. When the train was gone so was the metal sign. He may have dragged it with him.

Canal Street (BMT), Manhattan (Bridge Route)

Once upon a time it was unknown that the BMT or the IRT would  run this line, the tunnel going forward was to be an alternate route that was never used. When the BMT got the route they turned the tracks to the north to connect with their Broadway Line on the express tracks.

They call it Canal Street, but once upon a time it was a CANAL. They covered the water over and put a street there instead. Much later they built the Manhattan Bridge, and the trains across the bridge went into a subway under Canal Street, which more or less means through the canal. It really wasn't a canal any more, but the water was unaware of this.

Some Subway Stations are More Equal than Others:

But this station was built, perhaps as a headquarters station the New York, Westchester and Boston (NYW&B) Railroad.


But that railroad is no more. A few miles of it remains as the NYCT Dyre Avenue Line.
