Historic photo of Baker Street being built

Post by conrailman75 » Tue Aug 13, 2013 5:25 pm

I found this photo in some new Lines West photos released by the University of Pittsburgh:

It shows the interior of the station under construction. To give you an idea, this was taken inside what is now the waiting hall of the station.

A book is being assembled for Baker St. station's centennial celebration. It will be large format with pages about 14 in. wide by 8 in. high. I don't know when it will be available, but sometime in 2014.
