BL14CGS are also stored on the upper level on the Loco track.

I thought they were looked after, after 9/11 ?
Is there still a crane down there?

no crane (its at DAnbury Railway Museum), only old bagage car with wreck gear(the one Dan Bruckner keeps making stories about) and a old WWII NYC troop sleeper used as office at track 101 on lower level.
no other exotic cars or relics around.
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???

Hey Dutch, was that baggage car the tender for Crane 001?

What's the car on 102 behind the elevators? It's marked NYC.

Maybe you can solve another myth about GCT that is always not for sure. 'Are there' or 'are there no' people living down their and 'do you' or 'do you not see them when you are down there?
And, the most confusing question at all:

How many levels has GCT below lower level? :-) :-)

there are no people living down there - the homeless wander from time to time but they dont live there

Where do they wander, only on the platforms or on the tracks?
