OLDNYC.COM--> Virtual Tour --> Fresh Pond Yard Picture Gallery #5

A closer view of the trestle.

The old LIRR passenger car that is shown is going to be used as the railcar that will transport the tour group from Fresh Pond Yard to the 65th Street Yard in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.  It's an old railcar, but it still does the job.



OldNYC.com contributor Kevin Katta provided the site with this picture of Fresh Pond Yard and the trestle.

A nice GP38-2 locomotive will be used to pull the railfan's passenger car and caboose.  Another locomotive will be used for the reverse trip back to Fresh Pond.



Two locomotives are parked next to the Montauk Branch ROW.



The locomotive is pulling in to Fresh Pond to pick-up the passengers.  This spur will be used to link up with the Bay Ridge Branch.
