A test train here crosses the newly restored Broad Channel railroad bridge prior to the restoration of the A subway line between mainland Queens and the Rockaway Peninsula, which took place on May 30.

Back in October, Hurricane Sandy damaged the bridge so badly, it had to be rebuilt almost from scratch.

The storm also forced the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to replace more than 1,000 feet of track, remove 3,000 tons of debris, fill and repair two major breaches, the largest of which was 270 feet long, and repair two entire stations at a cost of about $75 million. Some 30,000 MTA customers were affected.

Welcome to the discussion.
