QueensScape No.20 - W in Winter - An Astoria Line Impression

This Astoria-bound W train of R46-type railcars has just climbed the ramp alongside the north side of
the Queensboro Bridge, from the Long Island City end of the 60th Street Tunnel under the East River,
from Midtown Manhattan. In a few moments it will be arriving on the upper-level platform of the
Queensboro Plaza Station, which it shares with Flushing-bound 7 trains.

The lower-level platform serves Manhattan-bound N and W trains, which access the tunnel via the lower ramp,
seen here between the level the W train is on and the pedestrian and bike path that crosses the bridge.
