ID the LIRR location

Post by nyandw » Thu Aug 08, 2019 9:20 pm

Just received this photo of LIRR N52A hack #41 in a yard. The A.T.S.F. boxcars, also known as Map cars of the era were painted as such for a period from 1940 to 1947. I'll go with c.1948 (post war). Where do you folks think this is?

Hillside when it was a freight yard?

It's a view S, based on the shadows. Doesn't appear to be the flat team track area at MP31 Queens Village...?

Found out: Caboose #41 in Blake Ave. Yard, N. of New Lots Ave. on the Bay Ridge Branch. View E. Platform at right background is the New Lots Station of the BMT's Canarsie Line - c. 1948 Info/Archive: Dave Keller

Sure fooled me. I had my money on Hollis. Two old timers from the LIRR ID the location! :-)

Thanks folks for the help... This was a tough one, for sure. :-) Added to the LIRR caboose roster: http://www.trainsarefun.com/lirr/lirrcabooseroster.htm
There are still "slots" to fill or better photos such as for LIRR C66 in its original livery in the 1960's. Thank you.
