Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The BMT Franklin Avenue Line is a rapid transit line of the New York City Subway in Brooklyn, New York. All service is provided full time by Franklin Avenue Shuttle trains. The Franklin Avenue Line was part of the original main line of the Brooklyn, Flatbush and Coney Island Railway or Brighton Beach Line, later known as the BMT Brighton Line. It formally opened on August 18, 1878, about six weeks after the rest of the Brighton Line opened. This portion of the Brighton Beach Line represented a routing compromise. The BF&CI would have preferred a more direct route to downtown Brooklyn, but instead had to settle for a route which took it north to the Bedford station of the Long Island Rail Road, where Brighton trains could operate to the latter railroad's terminal at Flatbush Avenue and Atlantic Avenue.show more
