  15. What's wrong with this G.O. is it because trains are ending at 96th st and it is inconvenient for people who live along that line that have to deal with no trains from the Bronx all the way to the upper west side of Manhattan. They can't just run the in two sections or could they. You think they are going to be doing track maintenance along the whole section of the line north of 96th st, but if not, then it will be unnecessary for them to close the line all the way to 242nd st.
