Making preliminary plans for an urban layout using MTH subway cars. Considering an elevated and subway line.
Can’t find realistic looking New York City style subway stations and elevated structures.
Found a company which made them for HO scale but not for O. If you know someone who sells them for O scale let me know.
has anyone scratch built realistic looking NYC subway el structures and stations (both underground and elevated stations ).
Would like to see your photos, drawings, materials you used, any helpful info, dimensions of your structures, tips, advice
People not from NY never understand why El is the term used for an elevated subway, which is an oxymoron. If elevated how can it be a subway?
true story- an out of towner got a job in NY. He had to run an errand, was given an address and told the place was under the El. He called his boss to tell him he was lost and didn’t see an El anywhere in sight. He was calling from a phone booth under the El but was looking for something shaped like the letter L. His boss, born and raised in NY, just assumed his employee knew El meant elevated subway line.
