Guess the location & significance of location (2008.07.03)

Recommended Posts

I've noticed tracks under Brighton (I think) before. So, I'm gonna just guess; Abandoned LIRR tracks underneath Avenue H?

Avenue H (Q) Station; Thats looking under the Manhattan Bound Platform. The Track underneath is for the NY & Atlantic Railway. This track also runs underneeath the (F) at Avenue I, the New Utrecht Av-62 St (D)(M) Station, and runs parallel with the (N) between New Utrecht to 8 Av, then runs to the water via the Brooklyn Army Terminal. On the other end, I know it crosses over Atlantic Av, and runs next to the (L) / (3) Trains near Livonia Av-Julius St. After that, I belive somehow it connects with Sunnyside Yards?

LIRR has 2 huge abandoned track sections and an abandoned branch line.

It does connect to sunnyside and every other rail yard/line on long island.

We have our winner! :) That is indeed Avenue H and that indeed is the NY & Atlantic Railway.

This company also delivers rolling stock & MOW stuff for use by (NYCT), (NJT) and amtrak. It is currently the only way to get stuff onto long island without passing through manhattan, where diesels are a no-no unless dual mode.
