Bergen Avenue Cut-Off/150th Street Connector

Recommended Posts

So i was reading up on subway history and i read that before the subway came into the bronx the White Plains Elevated was serviced by the 3rd Avenue Elevated line and the 2nd Avenue Elevated line. it said something about a Cut-Off that was built so the 2nd ave el trains would have much easier time getting onto the white plains El. and the 3rd avenue el used the 150th street connector and met up with the subway PROW at St. Anns Junction. but wat remains at St. Ann Avenue when the (2) and (5) line go underground is just metal structure of a middle track? but if the bergen avenue cut-off was 2 tracks where did the other track go? what was the path of the bergen avenue cut-off and 150th st connector? and was the entire area rebuilt after those 2 spurs where dismantled that all that is left is that structure from st. anns avenue to brook avenue. it also stated a double deck structure in that area? and wat through service was provided through those 2 spurs.

 

 

ive tried looking this all up on google and in wikipedia and on http://www.nycsubway.org but nothing comes up.

 

i would really appreciate it if ya could help me out with this.

On the NYC Subway.Org website please look for the "1920, Manhattan and Bronx Els - 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 9th Aves., 1920" track map which shows the track connections that existed at that time connecting the Second Avenue and Third Avenue El lines, and the Bronx IRT elevated line. I think that this map will answer your questions.
