Remarks & Notes 
Grade Crossing Eliminated. Returning from the scrap move, the light engines head up the Bay Ridge Line. The face of the East New York Tunnel reads "City Of New York Grade Crossing Elimination 1914", the last passenger train operated here in 1927. LIRR On The Bay Ridge. On the early morning of Friday, January 20, 2023, MTA Long Island Rail Road made some unusual moves as Bombardier M7s headed out to be scrapped. Bracketed by a pair of EMD built MP15ACs, first the cars were taken over the Lower Montauk Line, where LIRR does make occasional appearances along with tenant and freight operator New York & Atlantic Railway, but never with electric MU cars as the line is not third rail powered. Then after passing the through the Fresh Pond Yard, the cars headed through the East New York Tunnel and continued down the Bay Ridge Line to the New York New Jersey Rail 65 Street Yard where very few appearances by any LIRR operated power are known to have occurred since NYAR took over the operation in 1997. These cars have been deemed irreparably damaged in an accident and will be loaded to go by barge and then back to rail to their final resting place.
