    How fast do expresses actually travel?

    Trains on Queens Boulevard lately have really slowed down going westbound through Woodhaven. They used to go 35 or so. Now they go what seems to be 15-20. The timers going into Roosevelt westbound are infuriating. Trains go between 10-15 through there, and it is way too slow. If trains could quickly follow the train just leaving Roosevelt, it would do a lot to reduce dwell times and reduce crowding at Roosevelt. I also can't wait for CBTC! Do you think that trains would be able to run 50? I know that this would take a lot of work, and that you might not be allowed to do so, but it would be fantastic if you could make a general speed map of the subway system. Thanks again!
  2. That just highlights how bad service can get in the Rockaways.

  4. Planned Work and trains are running with delays in both directions because of a work train delivering equipment to make electrical improvements at E 180 St.

    Hello from England

    @DH73 Outstanding job! I especially love the pictures of the now closed Epping-Ongar branch of the Central Line. Welcome to the forums.

    It has been clear for some time that they want to turn the Oyster Bay Branch into a shuttle.

    Reopening entrances at these stops should be done as well. Great track plan!

    In addition, buses are forced to drop passengers off from the travel lane, which is dangerous, and blocks traffic.
  12. The platforms are too narrow, and the station is a bottleneck.

    Where on earth are you going to fit bus lanes on Lefferts? The street is narrow. Four lanes, two parking, two travel. Some bus curbs would help, but there isn't much else to do.

    Police cars, cars with police placards, and construction vehicles are ALWAYS blocking the 7-10 AM Lexington Avenue buslane near Hunter.
  15. That explains why I couldn't find it.
