    Parade of Trains 2018

    (Taken 6/17/2018) The Parade of Trains in action on the Brighton line. The Standards when I got there were not in action likely due to mechanical issues. Enjoy! \ ]

    I have ridden his train during the AM rush as well. Great to hear his voice too.

  7. Here's my go of it: -Make the Concourse line 4 tracks and have a train extension to Eastchester. -The 2nd Avenue Subway has three lines. The will act as the local with the (U) and (V) as expresses between Manhattan and Queens through 63rd Street. The express tracks would begin at 55th after they curve from the and end after Chatham Square. The would run under 3rd Avenue in the Bronx with a middle track for peak direction express service. Hannover Square would have 3-4 tracks to meet with capacity demands. I imagine the extension into Brooklyn has the 2nd Ave lines join existing routes or have it's own subway line under Atlantic Avenue (it would not use Court Street station; that stays as a museum). -Study the feasibility of a train extension into College Point or Whitestone. Ruling out NJ because there isn't really any support for that right now... -Reconstruct Roger's Junction. -Late night train service. That's it.
  8. Byford has a great thing going here. The mayor and the governor are gonna have to stop bitching at each other, and fund this thing if they want the subway in a state of good repair. It's like the current situation with the banks and cryptocurrency: if they don't implement this stuff now, they're gonna be way behind the rest world in the next 10-20 years.

    Same with the train too, only with different results.

    It could have to do with the train's fleet/yard (speaking of which)... Is there gonna be a / strip map soon since this train car is swapping between these lines so much?

    Double decker X17J MTA bus to run to Midtown this week

    That bus reminds me of the prototype MARTA* had 2 years ago. I remember a lot of people talking about that. *Did they end up ordering any or they said no to it?

    Cortlandt Street will re-open in October on the 1 Train

    I can't wait for the station to re-open. As a long-time train rider, it's a big step for the Lower Manhattan subway infrastructure to fully recover from 9/11. I'll likely won't mind the change in timing for trains heading to-and-from South Ferry.

    Why I'm I surprised to see this. It's been known for quite a while now that the fails to get these things delivered on time. Unless there's some dramatic change in management, it'll stay like this for years to come.
