IRT Substations[edit]

The description you added to the Category:IRT Substation 14 claims that the Category:IRT Substation 17 is the only one of the original substations that are still operational. What about Category:IRT Substation 18 in the South Bronx? ----DanTD (talk) 21:15, 29 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I took the description from the source cited (Gothamist) Is substation 18 online? Beyond My Ken (talk) 03:49, 30 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I'm having trouble finding anything online which says whether substation 18 is in use or not. The nearest I came is this, which only says it was in use as of 1978. Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:01, 30 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Well, they still have those high voltage signs and decals on the door. That doesn't convince me the place is dormant. ----DanTD (talk) 01:45, 14 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Maybe this issue should be brought to the attention of Gothamist, ----DanTD (talk) 01:50, 14 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Beyond My Ken

I've done some moderate improvements (rotating a few degrees to get a horizontal line, some adjustments on colour and contrast) on your image. Hope it's okay for you. Regards --Alabasterstein (talk) 06:19, 29 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Looks better, thanks. Beyond My Ken (talk) 01:49, 30 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]


I noticed you took a lot of good photos in Alexandria. Did you happen to get one of this building? It wasn't on my list and I just happened to take a quick photo of it, but I was hoping for a more direct angle (or a closeup of the cupola with its mannequin). If not, no worries. I'll try to visit Old Town again at some point. APK (talk) 08:37, 31 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

No, sorry, I didn't get that far up Washington. I wish I had, it's an interesting building. Maybe next time. Beyond My Ken (talk) 02:21, 1 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Ok thank you. APK (talk)
