The Brooklyn rails map shows all the railway stations and lines of Brooklyn trains. This railway map of Brooklyn will allow you to easily plan your route with the trains of Brooklyn in New York - USA. The Brooklyn rails map is downloadable in PDF, printable and free.

The entire network consists of 22 lines, plus 3 shuttle services. Total route length is approx. 350 km (some 230 km underground), with some sections having 3 or 4 tracks for express services (see Brooklyn rail map). There are 472 stations (153 elevated, 38 at grade or in an open cutting and 281 underground). The deepest station on the network is 191 St (Lines 1/9) which lies 60 m below street level. The New York City Subway operates around the clock, about every 4 min during rush hours (06:30-09:30 and 15:30-20:00) and every 20 min after midnight. Numbered lines correspond to the older small-profile IRT (Interborough Rapid Transit) network, whereas letter-coded lines were once the BMT (Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit) or the IND (Independent Subway) network. The three systems were merged in 1940, but the larger trains of the BMT/IND system cannot operate on the IRT routes.

In recent decades, the rails at the base of parcel K3100 (which is west of 4th Avenue) have been lightly used – NYCT maintenance-of way equipment and cars on their way to being scrapped have been the primary traffic. Until approximately 30 years ago, rail freight used these tracks, and over a century ago West End Line passenger trains used this alignment en route to a ferry at 39th Street. This section of freight track has generally gone under the moniker “South Brooklyn Railway,” and was once part of a much larger network as its shown in Brooklyn rail map.

The green line shows the Bay Ridge Branch, snaking across Brooklyn to Queens (Map courtesy of the NYC EDC) as you can see in Brooklyn rail map. But now freight-rail advocates see a golden opportunity for growth along the Bay Ridge line, thanks to a city Freight NYC initiative, a $100 million plan to modernize the city freight-distribution system. The plan, from the city Economic Development Corp. (NYC EDC), aims to rejigger the region transportation infrastructure to spur greater use of boats and trains in the shipment of the 400 million tons of freight that flow in and out of the city each year. Improvements to the rail network, the plan postulates, will grow the economy and foster job growth by lowering operating costs for industrial businesses, and in turn encouraging new businesses to move here.
