Re: A Question about the Lower Montauk Branch

Yes. The stepchild branch on the stepchild railroad. Most people probably didn't even know there WAS a station at Fresh Pond or Penny Bridge! What kind of stations were they anyway? Little slab of concrete, no sign.

It would have been the perfect conversion for subway service, but NIMBYism killed it (I believe ol' Al D'Amato spearheaded the NIMBY effort too.) Now with all the freight action on it, it cannot be.
