ACP 23 – The Stone Man
Classification: Grade 4
ACP 23 is to be kept in a type BLUE containment system. ACP 23 is to be kept in Site [REDACTED], in a chair with arms, preferably facing a window. Music should be supplied on a regular basis, preferably constantly. This music should not include pieces originating after 1937. A security camera should be present in SCP-014’s room.
ACP 23 is a Caucasian male, appearing to be approximately 25 years of age, with brown hair, blue eyes, and a somewhat round face. Records indicate his name to be Robin Chestford, confined in 1915 to the Norwich Asylum in Connecticut for delusional insanity, claiming that he had been cursed to live forever, and was slowly turning into stone in consequence. The asylum closed in 1937, and the patients were transferred to various other facilities. ACP 14 came to the agency’s attention in 19██, from rumours of a patient who seemed to be entirely immobile and showed no signs of aging. Further investigation determined that acquisition was warranted.
ACP 23 is to all outward appearances a normal man, but he does not appear to age, and shows no signs of possessing a metabolism. He does not eat, drink, perspire, or in any other way demonstrate life functions. He breathes only to speak, and apart from his eyes and vocal apparatus, is to all appearances utterly immobile. He has never shown any evidence of pressure ulcers despite his position not having varied for several decades; neither do his muscles appear atrophied. He can converse normally, but shows little knowledge of or interest in events since his confinement.
ACP 101 – The trans dimensional Train
Classification: Grade 2
Although it is not possible to remove ACP 101 from the New York City subway system, its predictable behavior allows The Foundation to prevent the public from encountering it. The 59th St. A/B/C/D Station is to be closed to the public from 11pm-1am on Saturdays/Sundays under the pretext of “track maintenance.” During that time, the station is to be staffed with B Division operatives. Operatives have been ordered to prevent accidental public access to the station, and to capture anyone seen leaving ACP 101. Anyone who has been on ACP 101 must be transported to Site-21 for debriefing and processing. Members of the public who see ACP 101 may be released after the administration of a Class B amnestic.
ACP 101 is a type R4 New York City subway train. Official records indicate this train was built in 1932 and decommissioned for scrap in 1975. Nevertheless, it continues to appear on the Uptown A/D track at the 59th St. and 8th Avenue station at 11:57 p.m. every Saturday. The train is in perfect condition and labeled as an “A” train. ACP 101 appears at the designated time, opens its doors to accept/discharge passengers for approximately five minutes, then closes its doors and disappears. It does not appear to ever contain passengers, except for those leaving the train during its appearance.
The majority of subjects that have boarded ACP 101 have not been recovered. Passengers leaving ACP 101 claim to have boarded on various dates, from 1976, up to 2204; the latter claims he thought ACP 101 was a 300th Anniversary Special train. Subjects retain no knowledge of time on board.
