Overview

Hammels Wye isn't a station but is included here as honorary mention. The wye is the point where the Rockaway Line divides to serve Rockaway Park and Far Rockaway. Between the two branches, there is a single track connecting them, allowing a through service between Rockaway Park and Far Rockaway (or vice-versa; crossovers are provided to access the wye track from both directions). This wye is rarely used in practice, but occasional construction or other issues call for a "Rockaway Round Robin" service where trains operate from Broad Channel to Rockaway Park, then to Far Rockaway via the wye, and then back to Broad Channel.
