A picture of the route to the last four pictures shared just one post up was shown at the NYC transit museum some years ago at Grand Central. It revealed construction of that broad el through barren Queens, through a moonscape, no tree, nothing for miles around, 1920s/1930s. Any chance of such photos being shown on the Web, because my searches have revealed nought?

By the way I'm so impressed by what must've been retroffiting of the tracking and all its accessories atop the el itself, even the gleaming newly-painted green steel beaming appears sturdier(?).

What the heck is wrong with you people?? Is this an ego thing?? Can you read the forum rules and learn about maximum number of pix/videos per post? This page is a unreadable now.

Maybe, but it doesn't clog up the board with a zillion images that take ages to load. Not everyone in the world has a super fast internet service!

They have a heap of new trains. They just look old, or should I say outdated when compared to what runs in Europe and Asia. Having said that technically they are modern and they do the job and do the job well. So guess horses for course.

You mean the 7 train Viaduct through Queens , this is the start of that. As for the replacing of the viaduct , there slowly doing that on certain lines. Unlike Philly were they used Concrete to replace the Viaduct , NY is still using steel.

Sorry, it wasn't the 7. I'd swear the breadth of the el under construction was four tracks.

There was something (I can't remember exactly) baffling about looking at the photo of that whole 'build it and they shall come' notion inherent in this barren landscape...or maybe it was merely the billboard size of the photo that was flummoxing.

Edit:

I finally just found one, which turns out to be the 7, afterall, by a Herbert Maruska, Queens Blvd, 1917:

"Shame"? I'd take a look again I mean, they even have spanking-brand new yellow worktrains (right?! )
Note: To Date, 229 photos tagged "construction" must load to fully view linked Webpage...

Unrelated questions

I have a bunch of unrelated questions about NYC subway:
  • Why are some services named after letters, and others after numbers?
  • What is the whole point and fuss about that 7 Subway Extension, given it will feature just one extra station near the Hudson? Isn't it too much brouhaha for just one station?
  • Are there any consisting plans to install Platform Screening Doors on NY subway?
  • Which signaling protocol is used on the network and is it the same for all lines?

1. Different companies built different parts of the system , but i don't know why there numbers on some lines and letters on others.

2. The 7 line is now a waste of a project due to the lack of funding for the 10th Ave station. Your right extending it one station is a waste , this project is also tied to a muti-billion redevelopment project so it got approved and pushed through faster and built faster then the SAS which is badly needed but isn't getting the attention of this extension. Some plans later include adding a station in at 10th Ave , Extending it to NJ which is unlikely due to rules preventing the subway from leaving NYC , or Penn station extension which is more likely.

3. The only stations that will or might get Platform screen doors will be along the Second Ave Subway (SAS) and the 7 line extension.

4. The Signals are the same for the entire system...

1. IRT- numbers;IND+BMT - Letters

@Suburbanist
1: as mentioned above, three companies built the lines and all but the last (IND) had internal numbering systems for the various lines; the BMT and later IND started using a lettering system when the subway was unified in 1940. I don't know why the IRT lines remained numbers, but it probably has something to do with the fact that it's a physically separate system (minus one track connection for work trains) with different dimensions for the trains and tunnels, a historical reminder of sorts.
3: the MTA has indicated that it wants to install platform doors at ALL stations, but financial woes being what they are, this is a low priority. Expect completion well after we're all dead.
4: the subway uses wayside signals controlled by track circuits with human operation near some interlockings (all?) Basically, signal tech and operation from the early 20th century. The Canarsie Line / L train uses CBTC for moving-block signals, but I don't think the MTA lets it run fully automated so the old signals might still be used there. The Flushing Line / 7 train is scheduled to receive CBTC technology in the coming years.

They have not , they've only considered them Extensions. They have been upgrading a decent amount of stations over the past few months , i think they would have installed them by now.

The entire Line F

Yes, that's right! We have the entire Line F, in-cab, onboard a R160A train.

All videos were taken by 46arthurdu

Jamaica 179 St. to Forest Hills-71 Ave


Forest Hills-71 Ave to 21 St.-Queensbridge


21 St.-Queensbridge to 47-50 St.-Rockefeller Ctr


47-50 St.-Rockefeller Ctr. to Broadway-Lafayette


Broadway-Lafayette to Jay St-Metrotech


Jay St.-Metrotech to 7th Ave.


7th Ave. to Ditmas Ave.


Ditmas Ave. to King Hwy.


Kings Hwy. to Coney Island-Stillwell Ave.


It is too bad that YouTube wouldn't let him load the videos that had captions of all of the station names. But they are still good videos.
