LIC Flyovers

Does anyone have any photos of trains operating on the two flyovers in LIC that connect to the lower Montauk branch?

Thanks, Crabman1130. Google gives the link under: Long Island Rail Road History - TrainsAreFun as follows: http://www.trainsarefun.com/lirr/lirrcontents.htm
The contents provides for the Montauk Cutoff page: http://www.trainsarefun.com/lirr/montau ... cutoff.htm

5 photos, and a cab shot. My favorite below:

The earthen ramp leading from Yard A to the Cutoff is no more. Completely removed, along with the Yardmaster's office. The Main Line Cutoff is still there, but abandoned.......
