Fifth Avenue (NYC)

Manual Office

Network Diagram - Big Four




        The Fifth Avenue operator on the Big four line between CD (the Big Four Yard office) and Worthington towers handled the transition from the single track to the north and double track to the south.  He may of had other responsibilities as well.

          At some point in time, perhaps the 1940's, the switch was automated and remotely controlled from CD tower.  When CD tower was abandoned (1960's?) the remote control was moved to Olentangy/HV tower.

        The operator was a NYC (Big Four) position.
