A/C Trains - 168 St. (Day 2, stop #51)

Out: see photos and description from entry 1 Train - 168 St.

In:  The platform here is pretty dirty, in concrete.  The tile work is also deteriorating, with many places where the tiles are stained by water damage.  The layout is 2 plat, 4 track with local and express access.  There are no mosaic tile station names, and just small black tiles with “168”.  There is a blue tile stripe on the wall as well.  There is a newly-installed elevator on each platform.  The mezzanine is long and wide, but not well-lit.  It extends for the length of the platform.  There is a short tunnel that connects to the elevators to the 1 platform.  Even though the bathroom looks quite new, it’s also locked, unfortunately.
