NYCT releases photos of 181 Street station work on official service changes twitter account

Photo of 181 St station on Twitpic

The shock here is not that NYCT uses twitter – they’ve been using it for a long time – but rather that they are actually releasing photos of the interior of the station, from right after the ceiling collapse to current views of the repair efforts. Check these out before someone at NYCT or the MTA catches wind of this and makes the photos disappear!

    Looking at the photos (one wonders if it’s official or a worker on his own) it seems that they decided to replace all the brickwork before restarting service. Why not put up the shield, clear the tracks, and run service during the day (skipping that particular station) for the benefit of the public? Actually, once that shield/bridge is up they should be able to work while trains run pretty much full time.

    There was a time when getting service restored as fast as possible was a point of pride. Now it seems the upper management doesn’t care. Not running trains is fine, as long as they can say “it’s not my fault.”

    2. No, you got it all wrong. They have NOT decided to “replace all the brickwork before restarting service.” Instead, what you suggested they do is what they DID – service restarted this morning with all trains passing through, under the shield, without stopping. “…Getting service restored as fast as possible” still is a “point of pride.”
