Brighton Line-Culver Line

Recommended Posts

Those abandoned tracks are most likely tracks from the LIRR Bay Ridge Branch. The line receives the infamous one train per day. I'm still surprised that freight exists in New York.

Yes, they are.

 

One way, they lead to the Army Terminal in Bay Ridge at 39 St.

The other way, they lead to Fresh Pond Yard, but there is a track connection (I looked!) to Hells Gate in the Bronx and even the Amtrak line to New Rochelle:eek::eek:.

Is that the railroad line that cuts through the (7) train in Queens?

I wonder what time of the day you could catch them....What's up with one train per day?that's a waste.

How is that a waste if that is all the service that is needed?

The tracks at the army terminal for the LIRR are adjacent to 65 St in Bay Ridge. 39 St are the tracks at Bush Terminal which connect with the West End.

 

Well I guess if ever they revive that LIRR service again [or make it a new subway line], Av H would be a good place to transfer to/from the Q line.

 

I would say there is zero chance of LIRR bringing commuter service back to that line. It's also unlikely that it would be rebuilt for subway use either, but if it were Av H would naturally be a good place for a transfer. The line also runs parallel to the Sea Beach for a good ways. And there is a stop right on the Brooklyn College campus.
