In the City of New York the people are transported by two separate, yet equally important pieces of infrastructure…
. . .The bridges that go over the rivers and the tunnels that go under them.
These are their pictures.
There’s a fascinating documentary uploaded by New York’s Metro Transit authority on the signalling technology still currently in use in some section of the subway system. Seeing the equipment and the control tower immediately brought back memories of Joseph Sargent’s classic film The Taking of Pelham One Two Three. I’m amazed that some of the technology that was installed when the subway system was first constructed are still in use. Must be a nightmare to find qualified people to service and maintain that gear.
