Very curious. I remember watching Conrail trains pass through Jackson Heights in the mid-90s when trains were regularly 15-20 cars long.
Here's a map of roughly where it is located: viewtopic.php?f=53&t=20&start=1860#p1493552" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; - it can be seen from a few overpasses.
I too recall those dark mid 90s days, sometimes they'd run light in one direction or the other. Now there isn't enough space, and the lower montauk is literally a parking lot.
