Train tracks

Sorry I don't have much to say about the photo today. I took this shot near the U.S.T.A. Tennis center in Flushing Meadows, Queens, which you can see a bit in the background. I liked the convergence of the train tracks in the photo. I believe it's the end of the number 7 line. That's all for today!

I think it's a place where trains come home at the end of the day to rest before they head out to work again the next day. :-)

juste a coté le Corona Park. Cela vaut la peine de prendre la ligne 7 pour découvrir cet endroit de NYC.

just on a coté Corona Park. It is worth to take line 7 to discover this area, NYC.

I like it too.

No words are needed. I can just sit and stare at a train for hours. I don't know why but they always draw me in.

Excellent photo! When it first opened on my screen, it played a trick on my eye and for a brief second I thought it was a line of shopping carts. Then, in the next second, I realized it was trains and tracks. I'd say you did a pretty dang good job!

Cool shot! Another part of NYC that many outsiders don't see.

A good example of how a utilitarian structure can take on an artistic appearance. The track arrangement is called a double slip switch and is usually used in confined areas like this. A train approaching on either track from either direction can be switched by remote control to the other track.
