    SUBWAY - Random Thoughts Topic

    AM rush put in or service change? I haven't see any pictures of it in action...
  2. The elevators at Clark Street aren't the only ones like that. There's the elevators at 168th Street and 181st Street on the that have caused chaos at both of those stops when they broken. That reminds me of that elevator from the 1900s that served Aldwych station until it's closure in 1994. Strangely, that said elevator was one of the reasons why the stop closed.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    For those who were at Atlantic Antic but didn't see any vintage buses today, the Transit Museum is holding the bus fest next month. https://www.nytransitmuseum.org/program/busfest2018/
  5. True, true... Problem is, where are they gonna get the billions of dollars from?
  6. Facts!!! City and state government (as well as the people) need to work together to keep this subway system functioning properly or it's gonna be like with what's going on with world governments and bitcoin; the subway is gonna be in the stone age if no serious investment is done in the next 10-20 years.

    Oh God not again. 😑 Actually, is this even true? I haven't seen any post on Facebook of him doing that rollsign.

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

    Also checked out the stop, incredibly lovely. Cortlandt-WTC isn't the first stop to have AC, 2nd Avenue subway stops have them (correct me if I'm wrong). Also, the uptown platform's tiles are temporary wallpaper, which means the TA wanted this stop open before the next 9/11 ceremony.

    No plans came up to connect Lex-63rd to 59th while the 63rd Street line was being planned up.

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

    I cannot wait for this stop to re-open this weekend. It's one of those things that's been long awaited by many people, as well as transit fans, and now they finally did it. Once it re-opens, all of the Lower Manhattan subway infrastructure will be whole again.

    Mysterious shuttle bus

    This a case of poor public communication or the 'shuttles' are just buses not in service. Maybe the planned to do this shuttle while the ESI work was being done but they decided not to go ahead with it last minute.
  12. From what I can tell from this article, the response from the riders is not good. But of course, this is expected with any major form of change with a bus system. Regardless, I still have hope that this bus route re-design will work.
  13. RIP John McCain. :(

    Let me guess: they're trying to adjust to the new stickers to the 62As on the ... The train is getting more crowded lately, especially weekends. Every time the and take a long time to show up, a ton of people get on the . Is the 7th Ave express becoming more slower?
  15. As others have mentioned, this here should be it. For those interested, there's a website that has track maps of train systems from around the world and all of them contain provisions (it's in French; fortunately there's a option to translate to English). That's because Ditmas interlocking is a leftover of what used to be the turn to the original Culver line.
