Metro’s 17-Foot Long “Experimental Station” in 1968

WMATA spent $69,000 for the sample station in May 1968.  After just a few weeks of construction, it measured 64 feet in width, 30 feet in height, and just 17 feet in length.  It marked a key milestone in the capital subway project – a massive planning and engineering effort that started in the 1950s.
