[PHOTOS] P.A.T.H. From The Past

Posted by Bill Newkirk on Thu Dec 7 09:15:34 2017

PA class equipment entering Harrison (NJ) station - November 1978

Leaving Newark (NJ) station - July 1979

Class K work train at Journal Square (NJ) May 1979.
Maybe those trucks seen here wound up on SEPTA Almond Joy cars when they served the Norristown Line (ex P&W).

Interior of Class K or MP-51. Resembling your IRT SMEE car a bit but with Lo-V door arrangement,
PCC style bulleye lighting and air conditioning. They rode nicely, were fast and the A/C kicked butt. Oct. 1979

Class K cars in 33rd St station (NY) July 1979.
Back when you took a picture and no one asked you to put your camera away.

I wanted to take a photo of the abandoned 19th St station (NY), but since it was not accessible to the public, what to do?
So on a 33rd St bound train, I put the camera, lens barrel flush with the picture window and with flash at the ready,
pressed the shutter and took a gamble. After a few tries, I hit pay dirt and caught this image.
The ad for Statler Tissues intact, is frozen in time. I don't know who the baseball player is, do you?
I don't know why so many missing wall tiles, perhaps removed to replace tiles in other stations. September 1978
