The Sea View Railroad was the very first elevated line in Brooklyn opening in 1881 after three years of construting the line. It ran from Brighton Beach Hotel (Used to be located at Brighton 5th street and Surf Avenue) to just one mile later at the West End Terminal. There was one stop inbetween the two terminal stations. In 1897, the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company bought the line and shut it down three years later due to it's poor condition. The Sea View Line connected the Culver Depot to the Coney Island - Stilwell Avenue terminal, but after the line was demolished, the Brighton Line was extended to the Coney Island - Stilwell Avenue terminal along with the Culver line.
