Night Trains - No.8 - Manhattan-bound N Train Arrives @Queensboro Plaza Station

On this winter evening, a Manhattan-bound N Train of new technology R-160B railcars arrives on
the lower level of the Queensboro Plaza elevated station in Long Island City, Queens, NYC.

This level serves inbound trains of the system’s B-Division (BMT) N and W lines on the north
side and Manhattan-bound 7 Trains of the A-Division (IRT) on the opposite side of the platform.

The upper level (whose structure is seen just above the arriving train) serves Astoria-bound N
and W trains on this side of the station and Flushing-bound 7 trains across the platform.

    Nice shot...good structures and contrasts of the Station - or should I say "our Station".
    For 32000 ISO there isn't much noise - fine !
    Best Regards

      Thank you, H-G. That high-ISO quality is one of the reasons I've really been enjoying the 5D MkIV. "Our station" indeed - thank you for introducing me to this excellent spot for capturing action on both levels!

      Thanks so much, Adele.Yes, that mysterious element is often a real attraction for me when shooting trains at night ;-)
