Paul,

Nice photo.

So, here is the FL9 and its train going under the Nereid Ave bridge...in the distance is the flyover which carries southbound New Haven trains over and onto the New York Central's trackage, joining the Central's Harlem Division right here.

Here is the flyover:

Nice catch, Tom. I went through there quite a few times when I road the Harlem Line in the last years of my indentured servitude!!! Interestingly enough, I immediately recognized the commercial building on the upper right - I swear some of those box cars were still there in the early 2000’s
