I’d say there are still  a few dozen of these clocks still in use in the subways, especially on the BMT and IND where countdown clocks have not been installed (and won’t be for quite a few years). I wish I had a better view of the clockface so I could see if the manufacturer’s name was there. This one can be found in the Chambers of Horror — the BMT Chambers Street station under City Hall, featuring an abandoned platform that hasn’t seen so much as one broom in decades.

    The Chambers street station has always creeped me out since I was a kid.
    Dark and gloomy like a Edgar Allen Poe story.Even the name is Poe-esque

    I recently saw a couple of guys repairing the ones at the 86th St. 1 station (which also has ‘countdown clocks’)…

    (Hope I’m not thinking of the B/C at 81st…??)
