Re: Tuscarora Almanac for October 10

This works because the BMT is descending, and the IRT is turning east under Eastern Parkway. The southbound IRT express actually flies over the BMT, which is some very clever engineering.

Is there a significant change in the IRT elevation between Grand Army Plaza and Franklin Ave? Eastern Parkway (the street) goes downhill eastward into Franklin - I assume the IRT has no need to actually follow the street elevation faithfully. In particular I would assume that the express tracks only rise to reach the level they need to be at at Franklin.
