PHOTOS: So long, 454 Oyster Bay out of LIC

Posted by Wado MP73 on Sat May 15 01:08:38 2010

a.k.a. train #560 but that number will remain with a different route.

I wasn't sure if I was going to make it but my son came back early enough from his school's overnight camp in the Poconos so off we went.

This is where we start.

Last time I rode this train, the high platform was long enough for one door. Now it's two car long. Most SubChatters should recognize the condo on the left.

Two more people came before we were all told the train will leave from track 7 or some other track but not this one. So we move south. Track 7 it ain't. Wow there are at least three high platforms here now? Is this track 9 or 10? IDK but we move down there.

We move, looking back at track 7.

Yeah... That condo is close to the tracks, what did they expect? Right next to it, is also the Queens Midtown Tunnel entrance.

We cross the Dutch Kills. The other bridge seen here connects the Lower Montauk to the Main line.

We go under the BQE's Kosciusko Bridge.

Passing through the back of Metro Mall, the M train isn't far from here.

Couple of pics going through Forest Park, trees are too close to get clean shots.

Defunct Richmond Hill station. The tags get worse as we go east.

Going back to civilization.

Traffic on Van Wyck.

Yeah, we're almost there.

There, we are.

While we were waiting for a Flatbush Ave Atlantic Terminal bound train, one of the few Brooklyn - West Hempstead train shows up on another track.

The catwalk installation between ENY and Nostrand is all done except for a short stretch right before Nostrand. The line doesn't look the same anymore. I tried to take one last pic there, but an eastbound train came right on at the time. :(

Well. I'm not a photo person, but thanks for watchio˙˙łf you're reading this.
