The complicated, sinewy, steel maze of Broadway Junction is most apparent in these views; the lower level tracks were once used by Fulton el trains......

Just beyond the busy Broadway Junction platforms, we see an elderly train of BMT "C"-type El cars, circa 1955/1956; note the postwar TWIN COACH below the train.

Fulton El service ended in 1956.......

The same view, about a decade or so later (in this late 1960's view, "Q"cars have replaced the old convertible gate cars, and a Fishbowl is seen beneath the El)......

These two views at the BMT's Fresh Pond Road ramps were taken in 1969 and 1974; in the 1969 photo, we see the area between the El ramps being used as a repository for retired Old Looks; in the 1974 photo, the Old Looks have gone, replaced with soon-to-be-scrapped "Tee-Yay" green Fishbowls...... Sad

Williamsburgh Bridge (Washington Plaza), 1963.

Three buses are present here; a 5106 is up front on the right, while another Old Look and a Fishbowl can be glimpsed in the background.......

Fulton & Alabama, 1981.

Note, also, the train of battle-scarred R-27/30's up above.......

New York Ave. & Fulton, 1981.

Quite a contrast, here, between the new RTS in the foreground, and the old "Tee-Yay" green Fishbowl in the background......

Willets & 148th; 1973.

Up on the El, note the ancient, battle-scarred work motor; this car, built in 1927, was used for many years as a "signal dolly".

By comparison, the MaBSTOA Fishbowl was quite "state-of-the-art".......

Webster & 201st St., 1973.
