Middle Village, Queens

The Circumferential Line north of the Fresh Pond Yard would use the New York Connecting Railroad line, which proceeds through Middle Village in a trench.

Metropolitan Avenue Station

The BMT Myrtle Avenue Line (M train) terminates at the Metropolitan Avenue Station. The NYC Connecting Railroad freight track runs just a few feet east of the BMT tracks, so building platforms and a transfer path should not be difficult.

The NYC Connecting Railroad then proceeds through a short tunnel under Metropolitan Avenue and a portion of Lutheran Cemetery before emerging in a trench.

Eliot Avenue Station

Although this is only a few blocks north of the Metropolitan Avenue station, this might be a nice spot for a station, given an available (and othewise unusable) small plot of land by the tracks and proximity to Juniper Valley Park.
