TThe Rockaway Beach branch started on the Main Line just east of WJ (later WIN) tower (Winfield Jct.) east of Woodside, leaving the Main at White Pot Jct. (after the 1910 branch extension from Glendale Jct), originally making a first stop at the short-lived Matawok station. In subsequent years, Grand Street (short-lived) and Rego Park (along the Main Line) and Parkside (south of the Main Line) were added as station stops. The tracks then crossed the Montauk branch at Glendale Jct. (after 1910) and continued on to Brooklyn Manor (at Jamaica Ave.), Woodhaven Jct. (at Atlantic Ave.), Ozone Park (just north of Liberty Ave.), Aqueduct, Howard Beach, Hamilton Beach then across the bay making the remainder of the stops, branching off the Hammel's wye and, heading west, terminating at Rockaway Park (Beach 116th St.) and heading east, terminating at Far Rockaway, Mott Ave.
