  1. They're scheduled at 8:12 and 8:32. Looks like the first one left 5 minutes early for some reason.
  2. I don't think we should be obsessing about the express F being held just before entering Stillwell terminal, if it's on-time until that point. It still saves time as per schedule for every stop on the line EXCEPT Stillwell. Very few people are left on the train by that point, I suspect, and they're the ones who have the most choice of alternative routes.
  3. What were the passenger loads like on the 2 expresses you took?
  4. You missed the money quotes at the end of the document - admitting the F express is only a pilot that will be reevaluated in a a few weeks(!) or months depending on ridership.
  5. Wow. They also studied a third track for the Jamaica line.
  6. They don't actually both arrive at Kings at 5:48. That is physically impossible. What I gather happens, from a discussion in Subchat, is that the express arrives there at 5:45, then holds until the terminating local arrives at 5:48, so that travelers continuing south can connect. So the time saved to Kings is actually 6-7 minutes.
  7. Many people start work at 8:30. I know when I worked at 48th and Park in a big company, that was the start time.

  9. "Walking from car to car will become easier because between every other car there will be a door that operates at the push of a button." Something that mainline passenger rail has always had.
  10. What's this sudden L work about? Planned Work Starting at 1:30pm, L trains will run every 20 mins between Bedford Av and 1 Av, while our crews replace damaged cables at Bedford Av. Some 8 Av-bound trains will end at Bedford Av. Canarsie-bound trains will stop on the 8 Av-bound tracks between 1 Av andBedford Av. Consider taking an A C J or M train for service between Manhattan and Brooklyn. We'll get trains back on their regular schedule as soon as possible. Posted: 9/9/19 1:05 PM
  11. A better solution would be to extend the Second Ave. subway west along 125th to the river.
  12. That sounds sorta unnecessary. A 125th stop on MNR would be a 3-block walk to the 1 at 125th.
  13. Wait, so you had Bowling Green signs in Manhattan, with the result that you kept off the train anyone who wanted to go to Brooklyn?
  14. One problem was that if you waited to board a W at Ditmars or Astoria Blvd., you would NOT overtake the preceding N local before Queensboro Plaza. So what's the point?
