A view out the south window between Jamaica and Long Island City. The LIRR only makes this trip once a day on week days, and I have to say, if you're used to the usual view from the train on the way from Nassau to Penn, the view is pretty amazing.

The abandoned stations on this route (Richmond Hill, Glendale, Fresh Pond, Haberman, and Penny Bridge) that were closed in 1998 are clearly visible, and I tried to point them out where possible.

This map traces the route with the stations:

You can make out the abandoned stations at the following time signatures:
0:00:500:01:03 Richmond Hill station
0:04:400:04:45 Glendale station
0:06:380:06:43 Fresh Pond station
0:08:280:08:33 Haberman station
0:10:200:10:25 Penny Bridge station

The album this inspired (written on the LIRR no less):
