I had posted a photo od a double-end Peter Witt of the 86th Street Line at the Coneyb Islahnd Stillwell Avenue Terminal earlier.  Here is a better photo of a similar car on the West End (streetcar) line at the same spot.  Note the elervated train above.  It a West End Shuttle, rinning between Bay Parkway and Stillwell Avenue during rush hours bwecause of the BMT's shortage of steel cars.   These specific elevated cars had subway-type third-rail shoes and were painted green instead of brown to distinguish thasm.
