Re: Tuscarora Almanac for October 10

The dual contracts got a lot of things wrong, particularly with the Els. I've documented 4 places where the old els connected with the elevated subway lines during the dual contracts, none of which lasted. Bway Junction, Queensborough Plaza, Bergen Cut-off, 167th/River all had els connecting with the subway and all are gone. They spent the money and then tore them down. And the one I haven't documented is the Webster Ave extension up to Gun Hill Road, built and it ran maybe 50 years. The R32s lasted 50 years. Fulton El through the rebuilt Bway Junction? 40 years but through trains only ran for 24 years before they cut it off at Rockaway Ave, Bergen Cut-off? Not even 40 years.
