Broadway Junction

Broadway Junction.  There is amazing complexity of switches, tracks and elevated structures in the area.  Jamaica traffic continues straight ahead in this view.  The overpass carries the L Line, the 14th St.-Canarsie Local.  A major transit yard is nearby, adding its own connections on the trackage heading down to ground level.

Once upon a much busier time, before the IND usurped Fulton St., that street's elevated line was also part of the nearby transit mix.  It must have been a glorious area (and era) for train-watching.
