The start of the pedestrian tunnel to the train station. Thats three inches of water on the floor and a plastered ceiling with recesed spotlights. I didn't want to get my feet wet today, so I didn't go throught the tunnel again this time.

  The tunnel dead-ends at a cinder-block wall. If you can get into the tunnel at the station end where you get access to the platforms, you will see a door in the drywall at the end. Inside is a portion of the main tunnel that is now used for storage. On the back wall the outline of the cinder blocks can be made out. The open main tunnel is 18 feet wide, while this one is 9 feet wide. Both tunnels are centred about the station and the boilder plant, and the floor is the same elevation in both tunnels.

  There is a parallel tunnel to the right of this one sharing a common wall. Towards the end of the tunnel is a small access doorway between the two. It seemed to be in an active area as it was well lit back then.

  The steam tunnel starts at a door next to the bottom of the escalator in the station. It runs beside the wide main tunnel and dips underneath the platform escalators by a straight 8 foot drop. There are 5 foot step ladders at all of the drops to allow access. It was pretty cool in there.
