Re: Nighttime Shot of 3rd Ave El at 67th Street (1953)

Hello Randy O ---

THANKS and Much appreciated for that info and, I had forgotten about that!!

And yes, at late nights some mainline IRT train services short turned ie; At Parkchester on the Pelham El in the 1920's and used Composites as shuttles to the Pelham Bay Station terminal end of the line and back to Parkchester. And on the 3rd Ave EL from Gun Hill Road to E. 241st St terminal and back at late nights as owl-shuttles.

Likely also, until the BMT started Queens Plaza Station complex to the Astoria & Flushing Lines' El's, their Gate Car EL shuttles in 1922, the IRT Composites did that shuttle service on the outer Flushing Line.

regards ! - Joe F
