    Why don't they run the peak direction express on the El? It would probably eliminate or at least reduce the conga line.
  2. Almost the entire B Division is affected with this one

    Has anyone else noticed that service on the and has gone downhill lately? If the trains aren't crawling through normally fast zones, If not that, it's normally absurd waits to the tune of 15+ minutes.

    Finally caught the train with the LED screens. They are partially obscured by the poles right in front of them.
  7. Apparently a downtown train is having mechanical problems, forcing other southbound s to go local. I'm not sure if that's the whole story, though, because I just passed it and there were a bunch of officers running towards a single car in the back with half or one door open.

    Should the R179s that have been delivered be visible from the platform at 207th?
  10. If the MTA somehow managed to become a privately run organization, what kind of changes and/or cutbacks would we probably see, and what kind of fares would we havw?

    On the corner of Fulton Street and Class on avenue, there's a joint stop for the B25 and B26. However, the 26 doesn't actually stop there. Does this signal a B26 Reroute in the cards?

    At least we still have the entrance to Nostrand itself, eh?

    Department of Subways - Proposals/Ideas

    @union, on #1, I'd say that untangling one of the bottlenecks along the Fulton St/8 av corridor would provide more benefit to subway service, and bring service improvements to Southeastern Queens. It would also enable the to be extended further. DISCLAIMER: I might be a little bit biased here, as the is my home line.
