A subway station with underground and street levels. The station itself was inspired by Park Street station in Boston, but it was not meant to be a model of it. The train is a model of the M4 trains run by SEPTA on the Market-Frankford line in Philadelphia. It is built on the 12 volt system.
The station is lit by six 12 volt lights, and the train is lit as well, with a combination of a 12 volt light and fiber optic cables, to provide light to the headlights and the interior.
An excellent subway! Having used the Boston T's Red Line (and therefore, Park St station), it definitely has that feel to it. Lighting just makes it even better!
(I just built a subway with town scene above as well, and put it on MOCpages yesterday)
For a minute there I thought it was real! This is made perfect and photographed very professionally! Well well done!
I like it

Great work! I love the curved roof and the awesome brick/tile work on the walls. 'Brick of Destiny' huh? Is that like 'Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny'? ;-) Nice job on the subway train as well. I like the shape and the detail work on the sides. This is a great little diorama. :-)
I like the shape of your version of the Septa m4 came out compared to my version.
I couldnt figure how to achieve that shape(the bulgy sides) Congrats to u for achieving it, nice to see more ppl doing septa creations!
