Winfield: Scunthole’s Lair 2012

April 16th, 2012 by

The winfield is one of the largest stretches of 'abandoned' tunnel within the NYC subway system today, in a legion with the Harlem section of the Second Ave Subway, and The Suicide Tunnel. What sets the winfield apart though is that it was completed with a rare station shell that was tiled and prepped for use (all other station shells of this variety were never tiled or completed to full size - Think Underbelly). The only thing missing from this station and tunnel is a set of tracks and a destination for those tracks. The subway line is meant to serve was never actually built - leading the tunnel to an unceremonious dead end. Much of the station area today has been completely rebuilt to accommodate offices and crew locker rooms. The remaining section of the platform is now 'scunts lair', a dark place piled with miscellaneous electronic junk.
