Matty, the Church Avenue Trolley did, of course, go through an underpass at Ocean Parkway. Within a few months before the trolleys stopped running I walked through the underpass. It was not a smart thing to do, of course, but I'll attribute it to youth (11 1/2) and a friend's dare. But, first, we made certain there were no trolley cars coming close from either direction. At nearly 77 I'm still amazed at some of my youthful choices. Looking at posted videos of the descending and ascending trolley cars confirms this!
