  1. It is certainly good to know that the power is connected. Not only connected but it is also permanent. Not only is it permanent but it also has an added benefit – it is energized.
    Who writes this stuff?

    And I still wonder, Who is going to chip the ice away from the equipment when the gales blow the snow in the big open holes? Too bad the design didn’t include a permanent and connected wall.

      Tunney’s Pasture station looks as though it will make a great wind tunnel facing east and west.

      Even all that poured concrete looks cold.

      Apparently however, this is world-class, award-winning architecture.

      If they were really serious about getting more passengers, they’d heat the stations.

      Or maybe that didn’t cross their minds.

      cheers

  2. I hope that the service level agreement for the escalator has a 99.999% uptime requirement. Given the sensitivity that many escalators have to the elements, I suspect that the service technician will have a cot and a hot plate in the parts inventory room inside the station.

    1. Ron,
      I kinda wonder if there will be a parts inventory room. Did anyone think to add parts replacement that to the iron-clad contract of build-finance-maintain ?

        I feel for aged and infirm if the escalator breaks down. The elevators could be pretty crowded.

        cheers
