Note the former W&J Sloan Furniture Co. tower with U-Haul sign and Flushing EL with #7 train operating along Roosevelt Ave. bridge.?The photo is at Shea Yard/Mets-Willets Point/World's Fair or whetever you want to call it. After the fair, the additional tracks were outfitted for mods and testing of the M1s. Subsequently used for the same on the M2, M3, C1/FL9A. It sat dormant for about 20 years and is now used for EIC cleaning.
Perhaps it is very early in the usage/testing cycle. Prior to actual use on the PJ Branch?
