They aren't falling on the tracks, and flashlights should be in good hand if people are so worried. If I ran the MTA, after services were done, I'd restore 91st Street as a museum honestly.
Political correctness has nothing to do with it. The issue is safety and potential risk.
Someone fell over some old equipment on the platform of one of the stations (I think it may have been 91st St) and wound up suing the MTA. I don't know if they won or not. I think it is a good assumption that everyone on the tour had a flashlight (I know everyone did on all the tours I took).
"after services are done" - what does that mean?
91st St is a side platform and only 5 cars long - it would not be use useful as a museum since there are active tracks (24/7) next to it. The cost of putting up soundproof plexiglass at platform edge and other restoration would be prohibitive.
I'd like to see the lower level of City Hall (BMT) be used as an annex of the Transit Museum.
