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

Hello X-Astorian

THANKS ALSO for that important additional information -- and the April 1923 date of BMT EL Gate Car trains shuttle service on the CORONA (Flushing) & Astoria EL's. !! Yes, officially called the IRT Corona Line at that time. Much appreciated

The Corona Yards were under construction in 1926-7 and so was the Elevated yard lead connection EL structure ....and the line to Flushing Terminal. And here are two photos of the Composite Car that rolled off the end of the still under construction and unfinished, yad lead tracks on the completed yard lead EL structure - 8-17-1927 - and rolled onto and fell off the steelwork of the EL structure to the muddy ground below!

regards - Joe F
