Agree with Mac as it's taken from the Tower, looking west. Arrt's website has a couple of great pics taken from the eastward platform of QVG station looking back at the tower, prolly a little before this pic was taken, if you want to see the tower from the station. Agree with Head-end as it's a FBA bound Hempstead train, as it's over that cross-over (slower than the one at Bellerose) and also it's got 4 cars, too small for anywhere else account of gapping. What's also interesting as there's two signals for going west on ML4 and ML2, which is after they tore down the old Hollis to what it is now, but before they put in Hall East, which took care of the ML2 signal (only the one on ML4 remains now).
Nassau is next on the cutting block, and both Nassau and Queens are destined for the dumpster as has been mentioned before. Next one to go after Nassau will be much later in the year but that is yet far enough in the future to be still in the deep end of the rumor mill. But don't underestimate the gents in Signal, especially if it means better air conditioning, room with a view, etc.
Nice shot! Thanks for posting.
