[WATCH] Here's What it Looks Like On NYC's Longest Subway Line From Train Operator's Point of View

Local transit historian and railfan Dj Hammers makes tons of great videos showing how subway transit works and runs in the City. In this recent upload to YouTube, Dj Hammers captures the entire trip on New York City's longest subway line—the A train—from the operator's point of view. See the trip all the way from the top of Manhattan to Rockaway Park, Queens. Check it out!

The A line of the New York City Subway provides express service between Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. It has three southern branches; Lefferts Boulevard, Far Rockaway, and Rockaway Park. The branches that run to Far Rockaway and Rockaway Park are especially interesting, as they travel over a causeway and two bridges that traverse Jamaica Bay.
