  1. Does anyone have any info about the M9s? All I can find is from last year. When are they coming in? Will they get rid of the gross yellow front on LIRR trains? But seriously you MNR guys are lucky with your blue and red trains.
  2. How would it change from IRT 4 service to IND V service inexpensively? Wouldn't it make more sense to start it as a rerouting of the E over Rutgers to Fulton and then down Utica? Once the new tunnels/line north of Fulton St were built, the E's terminus could be restored and the new V service sent down Utica.
  3. Wouldn't they be faster though? If done the French style running on medians, they would be out of traffic. EDIT: Traffic in NYC is terrible, a streetcar could bypass traffic for a fraction of the cost of a subway.
  4. Not sure if this fits here, but with all the hoopla about the BQX streetcar, it got me thinking that there should be an LRT or streetcar style feeder system in NY running alongside/replacing some bus routes or running alongside freight/commuter rail. The Bx.12+ could be a streetcar running from Inwood-207 Street, omitting the section to Bay Plaza along the NE Thruway which could be made a shuttle The portion of the Q.44+ from College Point to Jamaica could be made into a streetcar, which would make outer borough travel easier. A LRT or streetcar along (not on the tracks of) the Lower Montauk or Bay Ridge Lines of the LIRR would also be cool. Might be improbable, don't know a lot about LRT/streetcars.
  5. A C E (via 4 St, Chrystie, and Bway Junction) B D F M (via Chrystie and Bway Junction) N Q R W (via Montague and Bway Junction) J Z (via Bway Junction)
  6. I don't think that's feasible. There's a LOT of tunneling under TS already and you can already transfer to the 7 at 42 Street. Also, there is only a third track on the Flushing Line, so full-time express service on the Flushing Line would be impossible without a complete rebuilding of the el structure
  7. They were planning on that, but changed it as building phase 4 as cut-and-cover would necessitate tearing up Sara D. Roosevelt Park in Chinatown..
  8. Can I please get: R160: MARINE PARK-KINGS PLAZA SECOND AVENUE LOCAL NASSAU ST LOCAL CROSS-BKLYN LOCAL and R143 72 ST-BWAY TENTH AVENUE LOCAL 14 STREET LOCAL CANARSIE LOCAL
