Cincinnati Subway

Cincinnati's abandoned subway is one of the most infamous abandoned places in town. It's also pretty well known because there aren't too many completely abandoned subway systems.

The subway was built by the City of Cincinnati between 1920 and 1925. Seven miles of the line were constructed in some way. Construction was stopped in 1925 when the city ran out of money to continue. The project ran extremely over budget as a result of inflation. Check out my blog for more of the details if you're interested in this place: http://zfein.blogs...innati-subway.html

Anyways, UER member Gordon Bombay and myself, and a few other curious people made the most recent set of trips, which a lot of these photos come from. The rest of the photos were taken over the past few years of exploring it.



In front of us: nearly two miles of abandoned subway tunnels.


All and all, there are 4 stations and over 2 miles of tunnels. For being one of the more infamous abandoned places in the country, its photographed far too rarely. I arranged the photos by what station they were taken in:




Race St. Station - The biggest station, underneath downtown Cincy.










Liberty St. Station - This station was turned into a fallout shelter during the early years of the cold war, so there are some funky alterations.








Linn St. Station - This one was boring, because the platforms had been completely filled in.






Brighton Station - My favorite station, because it represented what the standard station would have looked like if they would have continued building. Plus my favorite photos came from in it, for some reason.












The Tunnels - These are just shots taken in the tunnels between stations.

Are they doing reinforcement work down there? Why so much activity over the tunnels on central pkwy?

I was under the impression that this place was impossible to enter without prearranged tours. Awesome set.

Totally jealous my ass is too fat to fit into the entry point...assuming y'all used the entry way we tried during MAMU.

Execellent shots.

There was some dumb graffiti, and there was some interesting stuff down there.

Somewhere I have a photo of a tag with names and a date, which just so happened to be on the day I was born.

There was some stuff from the 1940's there as well, just names and dates mostly.

wow
wow
and wow

my pants are wet

So obviously it never became operational, and looked like it never reached a state of completion where it could have been operational correct?

Someday, in the epic future, our crew gonna be inside here. How many days do you think it would take for a thorough exploration?

It's completed other than the actual track. The stations would need some finished and lighting, etc.

As for a full exploration of the place, it's about two miles long with 4 stations.. you can see it all in a single night but it'd be tough to shoot it all in one night, unless you hustle a bit.
