Where did you get that from? Jamaica-Belmont is $6 one way, $10 round trip at station prices. $11 on board one way.

 

Was that train very full, or empty?

But if your coming from Penn Station, its a nice one seat ride.

During some special events at Belmont Park more than one platform are used.

The train was pretty well filled. About 85%.

Surprised at that!

 

Belmont Park is the only low-level station on third rail electrified territory in the COUNTRY, and the only low level commuter rail station east of Hudson in New York not in Dutchess County.

Excellent shot!

Do you have Belmont Park Bus Station, too?

 

If I take Q2/Q110 to Belmont Park trip, can I could return on them without entering game?

You forget the formerly 3rd-powered Danbury-branch and that employee station on MNRR.

BP is the only low-level electrified station from LIRR, but not from the country.

Well, Danbury Branch (Merrit-7) is low level but not third rail. Employees-only stations don't count. What other third rail-electrified commuter rail systems are there in the country? PATH, SIR, SEPTA NHSL are all I can think of. None have LL passenger platforms, and obviously all subway systems are high-level.

That's why I said formerly electrified Danbury-branch.

And SEPTA does have stations with LL.

does the engineer spot the train visually at belmont? or is there a marker indication 10-12 MU

 

I think it's visually don't remember seeing any markers at the end.

 

Excellent shot!

Yeah, I have a photo of a RTS entering the bus station.
