Random Photos: State to Aquarium

I didn't realize how close these two stations actually were, but it turns out you can see Aquarium from State. You learn something new every day...

You can see how much deeper Aquarium is than State.

  1. They've gotten closer over time too. When they were lengthened for 6 car trains, Aquarium was extended westward and State was extended eastward.

    1. Ah, yes. I didn't realize they extended the platforms towards each other, though.

    2. They have to, you have the tunnel under the harbor on one end and the sharp turn towards Gov't Center on the other so the only place to go is towards each other.

      I wouldn't look too much into it, in Chicago there is a string of stations in a row with a shared platform- the longest station platform in the world. And in New York several stations are so close that trains are still exiting one station while entering another
