How was Main Street before the renovation, in terms of layout?
The track layout and bumper locations have not changed since the early 1950's. There was a wall at the east end of the station. The wall was knocked down for the fare control area at platform level. Two stairways from each platform to the mezzanine level were removed. Four stairways from the mezzanine to the street were removed. The remaining stairways were replaced. The present stairways are twice as long as the original stairways.
Track lengths prior to the early 1950's renovation could hold only 9-car trains. The two platforms were connected to each other behind the bumpers. The tracks were extended 100 feet and the connection between the two platforms were removed in the early 1950's.
