    SUBWAY - Random Thoughts Topic

    Something funny happened to me on the this morning. My train pulled into Jay Street (it was a R179) and we're sitting there for about 5 minutes. The C/R kept trying to close the doors and they kept reopening. Eventually, the train is OOS. Right when I was about to get on the to Manhattan, they say the train is back in service. I just found it lowkey funny.

    I would send the B67 there during the day, if there was capacity for it.

    7685 probably came in last after the rest of the order did, so it's probably gonna last until the Spring (that's when all the remaining Orion VIIs are supposed to be retired by)

    They haven't put the bus stops back yet.
  14. Since I live along the B42 and this new L5 route, the route is a very good idea. However, i think every 12-15 minutes would be a better headway compared to 20 minutes. Also, it shouldn't run all day, but at least have later hours.
