OLDNYC.COM--> Virtual Tour --> 103 Ave. to Rockaway Blvd. Picture Gallery #2

This is the section of the Rockaway Beach Branch where the branch passed under the IND A subway line.  Notice how tall the Rockaway Beach Branch utility poles are in this area.  The poles were engineered this way so that the LIRR utility wires could go over the IND line, rather than under the IND trestle.

A closer view of the IND subway line trestle crossing over the Rockaway Beach Branch.  We will later see how the IND A was integrated with the Rockaway Beach Branch as the tour continues it's journey south.  At this point, take note of the different elevations of the various RR ROWs.

One last view of the IND A trestle.   This view is looking northwest.
