Re: My Route Suggestion of the Old Abandoned LIRR Rockaway Beach Branch

NYCT is the only system I know of that drops words at the other end. The station at Gravesend Neck Road is called Neck Road! (There is one C/R on the Q who gives the full street name. He also announces the next stop down as Sheepshead Bay Road.)
Do most transit systems in this country really do that? The CTA certainly does, and it gets on my nerves there. Newer systems tend not to use street names at all.
