Cool progress on the LIRR extension to Grand Central

This is one of two caverns underneath the lower level of Grand Central Terminal that together will hold four platforms and eight tracks for Long Island Rail Road trains. The platforms will be fed by tunnels leading north, seen at the rear of this photo.

The plan for the extension is basically this:  LIRR trains will be able to arrive in Manhattan at Grand Central instead of only Penn Station . . . which in turn will thin out the horrid waves of people I have to deal with all the time at 34th Street Station, so it's good.  Really good.
