  1. SUBWAY - Random Thoughts Topic

    Saw a post on another thread and got to thinking. Why do the signals on the QBL express seem like they are further apart than on a lot of the other system segments? I feel like that exacerbates the congestion, especially in the PM from 36th to Roosevelt. The new interlockings at Roosevelt and 71 Ave dont seem to help speed things up much. The Lex and 7th Ave expresses seem to have signals closer together and those trains go noticeably faster in midtown and downtown, even with similar tph. Also, when were the timers on QBL express put in? Just curious

    Found it while waiting at Lex/63rd downtown platform. Front half said Q via Brighton, back half said R to 57/7 and had R rollsign
  3. WTF is going on at CP??

    All the drivers that I had did a double stop at the old and new stop. Seems they are going to do that until new signage goes up.

    @RailRunRob were you ever able to put more CBTC docs up?

    Was bus 2926 ever refurbished? It looks different and newer than the other 2002 MCIs, it has blue floors, different seat design, and LED destination signs

    So what is the difference when trains are rerouted during GOs vs unscheduled reroutes like this? How does it know where trains are going? Does the t/o control the bluetooth things on the train or is it done centrally? I dont know 100% how it works in the B divison.

    Agreed on the need for more service in those cases

    The official cause was a coned voltage drop to the signals at 71 Ave, and initially it was a bidirectional signal problem... though the timing is fishy. On subway time, the s that were sent to 168 were labelled as to Jamaica Center at 125th, and s to 96th st were labelled as to Forest Hills. Odd.

    The traffic on Broadway causes bunching on the Q53, with or without QBL local service changes. It needs better headways (at a minimum pre artic converison for sure), but extending the Q52 would screw up that line too

    I was on the QBL today, wasnt too bad except around Roosevelt Ave. And the express tracks between Queens Plaza and Roosevelt Ave were indeed barricaded.

    They are working on the express tracks ij both directions between 36 st and Roosevelt Ave. Not sure if that includes the small stretch between 36 st and Queens Plaza, but that is a possibility. Another one...

    Currently behind an M34 LFSA that has the rear sign reading M34 +SELECT FDR DRIVE is this a new thing that could potentially spread to other routes?
