Heh actually things got changed. I saw Atlantic Terminal, the Transit Museum and a few stations on the Q. I will note for the future, and Otto, I meant LIRR more mainly.
Pretty much the only LIRR you're gonna get in Brooklyn is Flatbu... Ahem, Atlantic Terminal
and the viaduct over Atlantic Ave. There is also the Vanderbuilt yard, but I'm not sure of it's exact location as far as where you could capture a good photo. It's near Atlantic terminal, obviously. In the future if you have some extra time and money, take a ride from AT to Jamaica and back. There's the abandoned Woodhaven station which I find to be of interest... If you're lucky enough to get an M3, you can easily see it out the front window between ENY and Jamaica. You'll also pass the employee only stop Boland's Landing and various facilities west of Jamaica that you really don't get to see when riding out to NYP.

Apologies for straying away from the subway topic-wise.
