It's not like it's two tracks just running between buildings on the surface would be, like the Whitestone line was, or think of the width of the Bushwick branch which while it's only one track, was a two track ROW I believe....but again, completely on the surface and unimproved unlike the Rockaway line was. They must have widened the ROW when the line was grade separated.
