Control Room

As part of the behind the scenes tour of Grand Central Terminal we got to see the control room. This is where every single train that enters and leaves the terminal is dispatched – pretty cool. Each employee had a few giant monitors with different maps of the train tracks, and on the wall at the front of the room there were two huge screens that showed every track and the location of every train. Such an amazing place to see, and I’m glad I was able to capture it.

Equipment:
Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L

Every time I see this room I feel like the operators should be touching screens that float in midair. Nicely shot man.

You guys had altogether too much fun in the Big Apple! Behind the scenes at Grand Central must have been a blast.

Sweet! Love those screens on the wall. Bet that Monday Night Football would look pretty sweet up there.
