It's at the new security

It's at the new security training facility they built at Broadway Station in the old abandoned trolley tunnel above the Red Line platform.

Are you sure? The columns are

Are you sure? The columns are blue, which would lead me to believe that this would be a Blue Line facility. They still have the old trains there.

Well, it isn't a current

Well, it isn't a current station. So either one of the train yards, or it's an old photo. I want to say old Wood Island station.

Yeah, I think it looks most like old Wood Island, especially because of those columns and that white looking brick.

If you look on Google Maps, you can see the large housings in the background.

Actually, it looks neither above or below ground. It just looks like an old station, but definitely not state. Too narrow of an entry to the tube for it to be. Plus, depending on which direction you're going, there is a huge curve and highly lit tracks.

This can still probably be the yard at Orient Heights. The buildings are narrow, and I don't see why the T would paint the columns blue if they weren't designating something specific on the Blue Line. Well, we'll find out soon.

However it seems too dark to be a yard. Seems more underground..
