Is that Flatbush Av in photo 4? What's with those walls?

Yup. Yeah the walls are really overkill. The bumper blocks are there as well. I guess they don't want to take the chance in case a train doesn't slow down and proceeds strait into the HEET's I guess...

I still say they should've just extended the tracks further down than have a 'crossway connector'.

Thanks!

 

Yeah, I still feel it was overkill. The blocks should be enough. It's good enough for the GCT end of the Shuttle and the 7 at Flushing. hell the 2/5 crawls into the station, real low risk there [for the most part].

The whole station has timers comming inbound so that lowers the risk even more...

wouldnt the train be able to break down the wall if the bumper wasnt able to stop it?

I think the wall is there for humans sake not so much the trains. :(

Yeah, sorry to say, but if you're leaning on that railing there, minding your own business and some train comes in and fails to stop: you have a high chance of being royally screwed. Wall or no wall, you are going to have a very bad day.

Lol! Well seems like everything over at Flushing and the GCT end of the S* have been mostly incident free.

 

*Of course there was the incident a few years or months ago where the S on ?track 3? hit the bumper.

Nice shots, at first I thought the R142s were on the (S) but I realized those R142s are those of the (2)(5) at Flatbush Avenue.
