That room with the large glass panel? I was informed that's the Dispatch office... I'm going to need more convincing to believe that was the captain's quarters.

Nobody said that the pole from the third floor was anywhere near the alarm. I said that the removed pole that had been near the fireplace in the Crew Lounge was the one that descended near the alarm. The pole next to the arcade machines descends on the opposite side of the station to the alarm, next to the first set of wooden lockers (not the ones Ray, Peter and Egon use).

Daniel said that was the Captain's quarters. He said that there were two Captains there and that once the chief's quarters was moved the two would swap out using the 3rd floor. Like I pointed out though, the pole next to the fireplace in the lounge doesn't come out next to the alarm, it's farther forward and you can see it's hole at the time I referenced in my last post.

Okay, I think I can see where we're crossing wires.

Two firepoles access the Crew Den. One that only descends from the Third Floor, and a second which ascends from the Engine Bay.

The one at 4:00 is not the one I'm talking about, which lands not too far from the alarm. The one I've been referring to is the now-sealed firepole, just glimpsed at 5:05 in Part 3.

There's only one pole in the Captain's Quarters (which were on the third floor) and only ran down to the second floor (into the Crew Lounge/Den), the other five connect the second floor to the first. If I understand what you mean by "the first one on the left", that particular one was accessed via the Crew Quarters, and was the one nearest the arcade machines. The firepole near the Fireplace in the Crew Den is the one that descended near the Alarm Box, where the bell would be found.
It actually comes down near the front door, the one that came down near the alarm box is in the corner oposite of where the StarGazer pinball machine is.

I've just seen the photos Borzou took of the day... some fantastic stuff, only a few small things left to get a better look at.

Did anyone happen to grab any shots of the bedroom and adjoining bathroom at the front of the third floor? This is pretty much the only room I so far haven't seen a direct shot of.

Any chance of those photos being posted on here? The ones that have already been posted are great, but I'd really like to see the others if possible.

I'm sure Borz wouldn't have any objection, but I'll consult him first before I post them.

I have no objections to the pictures being distributed now that Ben has them. The only reason I didn't make the rapidshare links available is so Ben would be allowed to download it. Rapidshare apparently allows 10 downloads per file uploaded. Considering it was a pain in the ass to get the pictures uploaded, I didn't want people using up the download limit.

AJ said something about uploading the pictures at a later time, so we'll see how that plays out.

Also, I took a limited amount of pictures because I was racing against my battery life to snap as many pictures as I could. So pictures of the 3rd floor (including the bedroom) are missing from my collection.

If I ever get the chance, I want to return with a better camera and spend the entire day taking quality pictures of the building.

Finally, I would like to thank Dougger for sticking around and helping me snap pictures. My pictures are now worth more money now. :D

There's certainly scope for that if you're free around the time Daniel was hoping to open the place up for it's centennial, and/or for the next Downtown Community Unity Festival.


I'd just like to publically thank Borz for taking the time to grab them, it's a great archieve for the fans, and will be of immense use when coupled with Vince's video in finally defining the layout of the building.


The end result will be Isometric illustrations of LA23, rendered in 3D. :) Possibly a video walkthrough as well.

I was looking through the LA Fire website and apparently there was a library on the second floor with "doors of leaded glass." Does anybody know exactly where on the second floor this was? Looking through the videos, I couldnt find anything that matches that description

I suppose that account may refer to the room at the very front of the station, what I've often referred to as the "crew den", the one with the fireplace and the firepole that connects to the final floor of the Station.

This is a confusing building. I always thought that was the Captains Quarters (until I looked at the LA Fire website and saw differently)

Using Kingpins floor plans as a base and updating them with the pictures and video seen in this thread I present an updated floor plan of old 23:

Any corrections/notes from those lucky enough to have been there would be appreciated.

Placed another call in to the city controller yesterday on an update for the next maintenance. That is when we can get access. So we will see what happens.
