A proposed extension of the Flushing Line along the Port Washington and College Point branches of the LIRR. 

Proposed Extension of Rapid Transit from Alburtis Avenue, Corona, through Flushing to the CityLine at Little Neck and to College Point, Malba and Whitestone,by Leasing Tracks of L. I. R. R. Co. THE Dual Subway is shortly to be extended to Flushing and vicinity.Trains are expected to be in operation by May, 1918, with 5 cents fare from any point on present Subway to Flushing, Main and Bridge Streets, and 10 cents to points beyond to Little Neck and White-stone Landing. Agreement is about to be made between the Public Service Commission and the Long Island Railroad for leasing the tracks of the Railroad from Corona through Flushing to Little Neck and toCollege Point, Malba and Whitestone. Development possibilities of the Flushing district are enormous,and Flushing will probably witness a real estate boom smilar tothat which occurred in the Bronx a few years ago.

Shame that this never happened. Source: x
