Overview

Opened: 12/24/1920

Leaving the subway, the line to New Lots Avenue is a standard Dual Contracts elevated line. The structure has two tracks (except at Junius Street which has a center track used to access the Linden Yard). The structure is wide enough throughout its length for a center track and evidence in the stations above the mezzanine shows a partial third track existed in all stations except New Lots and Junius Street. This partial track has the trackway plus cross ties set into the concrete but no rails. I have no information as to whether there were rails and they were removed or if the trackway with cross ties is the end of the idea for a third track. Along part of the line, the space is used for various signal rooms and mechanical rooms.

The stations are all fairly nondescript elevated stations. There are no crossovers except at Junius Street. The first elevated station is at Sutter Avenue/Rutland Road, which is over East 98th Street. This station has full canopy on the north end and no windscreen on the south end.
