    This was mentioned on the R179 thread but why is the s/b IND Culver express track almost entirely 2shot timers between 7 ave and Church Ave? The signals appear to be of the newer type (like those at the 34th St/6 Ave, Roosevelt Ave, South Ferry, 2nd ave, and Hudson Yards areas)

    Planned Subway Service Changes

    I am not seeing this on the planned service changes site. Only hints are express from 21st st to 71 ave and no late night between 59th St/4th ave and Whitehall. Not that i dont believe it, but the site looks incomplete

    The downtown QM drivers will do that once in a while in the AM if there is traffic on the ramp

    Had that happen last fall pick, guy would park the bus mid run and use the bathroom at a white castle on Queens Blvd almost every morning before getting on the LIE. Everyone just would sit there like WTF

    No, 2 concrete barriers surround the lane.

    The bus and those stuck behind may still be there, but i got on a QM7 that stopped for us. Probably 45 minutes. Others may still be there. It was a QM11 that broke down, a 3xxx series

    So i got to find out personally what happens when a bus breaks down in the LIE HOV lane: call MTA cops and board other buses in active lanes of traffic. I feel bad for the people stuck behind us

    If something goes wrong on Broadway it's game over. 53rd st, 6 ave, Crosstown-Culver connection, and s/b Broadway express are now all OOS.

    This evening around 7pm at Woodhaven Blvd and the LIE, I saw a deadheading QM12 with an interesting headsign. I wasnt able to get a pic. It said somthing to the effect of Your pollution solution Has anyone else seen this on the MCIs?

    Same here. Downtown meaning via 53rd st/6 ave/Manhattan Bridge?

    The 34th st 6 Ave interlocking got cut over this weekend. All the "new" signals at 34th and 42nd went into service. I know theyve been bagged for 3 to 4 years already but they look fresh! I've also noticed a trend with several new interlockings where station time on the mid station signal(s) is explicitly displayed until they turn yellow

    I've seen them have trains wait to start their runs to Brooklyn on the express track, then switch to the local, while (e) and would run through on the local track. This was when work was being done further down the line and not at 71 Ave

    Yeah, the QBL towards Forest Hills/Jamaica was jacked up on both tracks, trains following each other on station timers like crazy

    How will lenghtening blocks increase throughput? Sorry if this seems like a noob question

    What happens when t/o s punch the wrong lineup? Will they get disciplined or taken OOS? The twitter people mentioned it here

    There is still an R142 set with the shortened announcements. I got it on the today, i think it was car 6594
  19. The curve at Northern only has timers northbound (the only timers between 36th and Roosevelt n/b) and a speed sign southbound. The timers on the express stretch between Roosevelt and Queens Plaza/21st are before 36th s/b, in b/d b/t 36th and Queens Plaza, and the curve between 36th and 21st on the Cant speak to the express stretch east of Roosevelt, but the local has no timers (except implicit station timing when stations are occupied)

    Thats probably the same driver I had yesterday on the QM11, was 15+ minutes late. Hes been there since the winter pick.

    When a new pick is in effect, do all drivers switch runs? Seeing different drivers on th CP express runs i usually take, not all are good.

    How is the speed in Automatic mode during regular conditions compared to running with block signals?
