    I feel like this question's been answered before. Anyhow, they have to do it during the midday hours because if they only did work on the weekends, those repairs would take longer, thus resulting in more service diversions. Also, they can't do some repairs during the overnight hours for safety reasons and because people who live the elevated lines would be livid if workers were shining large lights in their windows in the middle of the night.

    I have 3:
    -Chambers Street (J)(Z) is an ugly place
    -QBL is getting (what I call) "countdown clocks"
    -I hate the new renaming of Court Square-23 Street :tdown:.

    Hey 70(EE) can we also post about Buses? if so then:
    -I wonder if 3607 will get the new decal scheme since its a blackback...

    That's how you do it t/o. Put that notch into full throttle and leave it there as we race through that curve out of Brighton Beach. That's why I sometimes head to the last car. Same thing goes for Manhattan bd (F)s leaving West 8th. Once that timer clears - wrap it up!

    Hi 4P3607! I considered a single Transit Thread, but figured it would have to be in Off Topic and might get really large, so I created one for subways and one for buses and placed them in the subway and bus forums. Please enjoy!

    Hey 70(EE) can we also post about Buses? if so then:

    Random thought:
    when the (Q) gets extended to 96 St,

    (6) at 59 St:
    "This is, 59th Street. Transfer is available to the (4),(5),(N),®, and (W) trains. A free transfer is also available to the (F) and (Q) trains by walking to the Lexington Avenue - 63rd Street station and using your MetroCard."

    (Q) at 63/Lex:
    "This is, Lexington Avenue - 63 Street. Transfer is available to the (F) train. A free transfer is also available to the (4),(5),(6),(N),(Q), and (W) trains by walking to the Lexington Avenue - 59th Street station and using your MetroCard."

    Sounds like an interesting announcement to hear.
    *mentioned (W) b/c of popular thought that (W) will be revived when (Q) goes via 2nd Av
