M Train Leaving

New York City has very few instances where two active tracks cross each other.  One example is illustrated rather handsomely here.  The outbound M connects to the remaining portion of the old Myrtle Avenue Line to head out to Middle Village Metropolitan Ave.  In doing so it crosses the inbound Jamaica Line track.  A train departing the last stop weekends and nights has just left the middle tracks.  Complex trackage and switch patterns make this area a spectacular sight for the urban rail fan.
