Kendall chimes are fixed!

Postby boblothrope » Sat Aug 05, 2017 12:16 am

It's been several years, but the Kendall Band interactive chimes artwork is now working!

When did this happen, and who fixed it? They should really publicize it.

The other two parts of the exhibit (the floppy sheet metal, and ring and hammer) still lack their handles. But they were never as interesting as the chimes.

The circle and hammer is easily the coolest. Even when it worked, it usually didn't work. When I was younger I always imagined hanging out on the platform and striking the circle every time a train approached. This was before automatic Frank told you anyways.

This is awesome. I'd been wondering how long they were out of commission.

I feel like they work for 6 months every 8 years
