Last weekend when I visited Fairfield Metro, I had officially completed the New Haven Line. I have been to every active station, on the main line and the three branches. However, at the current rate of a station per week, it will be another few months before all of the stations have been posted as a Tuesday Tour.
First station photographed: Danbury, March 20th
First station posted: Bethel, May 17th
Last station photographed: Fairfield Metro, December 3rd
Photographic proof of my achievement can be found below (as I also did for the Harlem Line). At quite a few stations I was there by myself, so it was rather amusing to attempt to take my picture with the camera’s timer. When I photographed Harlem Line stations, the name signs were generally all in the same place, at the same height – this was definitely not the case on the New Haven Line. Some station signs were up high and hanging from things, others were down low a few inches from the platform… and if you’re Merritt 7, you aren’t even cool enough to have a sign like the others.
I love all the different sign fonts and heights (and the way you captured yourself and the sign together) – displayed together they tell a fun story, not to mention an impressive achievement!
I’m digging the shoes too.
Congrats on this milestone! Really enjoyed the pictures.
Congratulations! You’ve saved the best for last. The Hudson Line in the Spring. See you in Poughkeepsie!
Haha, you are exactly the reason why I’m nervous about posting Mamaroneck! I’ll get there eventually.
