Flushing Express<61 St-Woodside

61 Street-Woodside is the first express station with two island platforms for the three-track line (express trains open their doors just for which direction there running in, during frequent GOs that requires all trains to run express in a particular direction express trains will often open their doors to the opposite platform so double-backing passengers can transfer without having to use the mezzanine). It is a high, elevated station located above the LIRR platforms with both the Subway and Long Island Railroad sharing a station house/mezzanine area nestled between them. Street level is four stories below beneath the LIRR platforms. Trains go a noticeably bit uphill to reach the station in both directions. Both island platforms are simple and were renovated recently, each has a canopy over their mid-sections and two staircases and an elevator down from each platform to the communal mezzanine/station house (covered on its own page).
