Elevated style third rail too. Wall sconce lighting fixtures to be installed.

Now come up with a pic with LIRR MP-41's there and you'll get everyone's attention.

Ath the time of the photo, wooden cars had not yet been banned from the subway so el type 3rd rain would be appropriate. Also note type I roadbed in the station instead of the type II which we are used to seeing there.
