The S-Franklin Avenue Shuttle is a shuttle train service of the New York City Subway operating in Brooklyn, New York.
The current service is co-extensive with the BMT Franklin Avenue Line. It parallels Franklin Avenue, hence its name. It was originally a part of the mainline of the Brighton Beach Line and opened as part of that steam railroad line in 1878. The mainline was shifted in 1920, and the Franklin line was reduced to a full-time shuttle in the early 1960s. The north terminus is called Franklin Avenue station, and is at the intersection of Franklin Avenue and Fulton Street. The station is called "Franklin Avenue" instead of "Fulton Street" because it was built adjacent to the Franklin Avenue station of the pre-existing Fulton Street Elevated. The south terminus is Prospect Park. There are currently 4 stops on this line, as one of the existing stations, Dean Street, closed in 1995. The Franklin Shuttle was completely renovated in 1998-1999.
On November 1, 1918, in the worst rapid transit railroad accident
prior to the Amagasaki rail crash in 2005, a speeding Brooklyn Rapid Transit train crashed inside a new tunnel leading into the Prospect Park station, killing at least 93. This became known as the Brighton Line Accident or Malbone Street Wreck.
