Questions about Merrick station

Recommended Posts

Why do the tracks at Merrick use bi-block ties? And what are those warped looking inner rails beyond the station?


Bi-block ties (half ties) usually mean direct fixation. Why they're at Merrick I don't know, I know they're used Amityville-Babylon and in the Atlantic Av Tunnel.


Rails inside the gauge are usually leftover from trackwork that was never removed. If they're straight, they're guardrails, but you said they're warped.
