Back to SubStation. According OHNY Brochure, it was maxium 25 people per but they extend to 35 people b/c of powerful tour. Here are shots of OHNY-ers! Another Japanese guest joined me. They only had 11am and 1pm tour. We came early b/c Transit Museum calender was stated 10am.
Tour started 30 minutes early.

Is that rotary converter still in use or was it just too big to be moved when the MTA switched to some more modern method of current conversion?
