    Hell no, if you guys remember that thing that AroundTheHorn posted a while back about the (M) to the Rockaways idea, that's the best idea for the Rockaway Beach Branch.

    I only want a train on the Rockaway Beach Branch, it could be the (S) Extended from Broad Channel, doesn't matter, better than no train, even with a transfer at Rego Park...

    R should end at Forest Hills and the G should go down

    It's either going to be the ® the (G) the (M) or a revived (H) train which I think should run local to WTC, allowing (E) trains to branch at West 4 Street to cover as a local service on the Culver line to allow for better brooklyn express service on the (F)


    What, exactly, would this accomplish?

    Simple, ease congestion on Woodhaven Boulevard, eliminate long transfers from the (G) to the (E) and (M) at Court Square, reactivate an LIRR branch for the NYC subway to connect with the (A) and replace the (S) at Rockaway, possibly increasing capacity on whatever line gets sent down there. Most importantly, it would be a boon for the area's along this branch

    Not to be rude or anything, but why bump a thread that's been dead for more than a month? And we have a subway proposals thread specifically for these ideas.....

    And, pray, where is the track space for these new (G) trains? And how about for (E) trains on the 6th ave local tracks? 

     

    IDK how long it'll take until ppl get this, but both the (G) train and Queens Boulevard are better off with (G) s ending at Court Square.
