    Department of Subways - Proposals/Ideas

    Hackensack sounds like a job for Gateway or the RPA's proposed commuter rail loop, not the subway...

    Wasn't Far Rockaway completely separate before Sandy?

    Planned Subway Service Changes

    If you check by date, the 57th Street advisory disappears after the 18th. Same thing with 28th Street on the 6.

    Second Avenue Subway Discussion

    Just to clarify what I meant: I'd have built 63rd to Houston as phase 2 (directly after phase 1) and started 96th to 125th as phase 3, roughly around the same time as the MTA is currently.

    Your Transit Memorabilia

    They put Second System readings on the original R1-9 rolls? That's the first I've heard of that.

    CBTC - General Discussion

    Your point about 8th just reinforces the idea that's been in my head for awhile that we will eventually come to a point where the only option to increase service is to reorganize B division services based on maximizing throughput as much as possible (i.e. designing services based on "threading" together line segments in the most efficient way possible rather than keeping existing services intact.)

    Systemwide CBTC - Planning and Implementation

    This looks like a great hire to me. Clearly knows what he's doing based on his track record. The full press release is here: http://www.mta.info/press-release/nyc-transit/nyc-transit-president-byford-announces-hiring-new-signal-modernization Byford says Tomlin's first assignment will be to make tweaks to the after the meltdowns this month and to finish Queens Boulevard.

    I meant in what order would those corridors be built...

    I have never understood the hype over the "rail fan window"

    Okay, I sympathize with MTA for once...

    The only guy telling them to shut up and "fix the problem" was completely out of line. I don't care how pissed you are, someone died... Have some respect.

    Systemwide CBTC - Planning and Implementation

    So we all know the corridors that will get CBTC but what's the order of implementation?
  14. To paraphrase a tweet I saw earlier: If the MTA is going to focus so much on fare evasion, we should start referring to delays and missed trips as service evasion.
