The 167th Street station on the Concourse Line has its share of secrets – namely, sealed mezzanines on each platform that led to the underpass. Unlike most underpass entrances (whether open or closed), this one featured more entrances between the roadways. The Bx35 bus used to run via the underpass to connect passengers to/from trains (and before the bus, there was a trolley!); Joseph Brennan’s site has a brief history of the trolley station and underpass. As the underpass in question is no longer accessible to pedestrians, I traveled there by bicycle to take pictures (hence, I did not trespass); and now, here is a look at the largest (closed) underpass entrance complex on the Concourse Line.
[DISCLAIMER: All photos taken from the trolley platforms. Under no circumstances were any photos taken from the roads (which are very much active) - do NOT, under ANY circumstances, walk through the underpass or "hang out" at the trolley plats; methinks you'll arouse suspicion!][let's keep going under...]
[UPDATE (10.16.2012): Added two VIDEOS of the train - each viewable in up to 720p HD!]
Before the start of each Yankees home playoff game, the MTA runs a special “nostalgia” train consisting of four 90-95 year old low voltage (or Low-V) subway cars. Here are some photos of the special train taken on various days. [travel back in time...]
