  1. I’m a little confused at this part right here. What is this track map supposed to represent and could it work for stations like Rockaway Blvd on the ? Heck, could a similar method even be used to fix the design flaw at 72nd Street/2nd Avenue? Speaks of the SAS, I posted something above that relates to the poor Decisions of how Phase 1 was planned and the consequences it has on Phase 3. I also tried to point out all of the options that were discussed to help Phase 3 operate at its full potential.
  2. The only bell mouths at 63rd Street are for SAS. @Union Tpke Too bad that wasn’t the case with 57th Street.
  3. Due to the poor Design of Phase 1 of the Second Avenue Subway, I’m very conflicted as to which idea I agree with. 1. Building a New Lower Level at 72nd Street/2nd Avenue. 1A) would be to have the terminate there while the continue North. I don’t see the feasibility of making a Junction North of 72nd Street for trains to Transverse. 1B) The same, but in reverse. The Upper Level Being repurposed yo terminate Trains and have trains continue North. 2. Building Phase 3 Under Neath 3rd Avenue instead of 2nd Avenue. (Reference to Alon Levy’s Plan) 3. Building a Diverging set of Tracks near 48th or 57th Street to allow for trains to run Express along 3rd Avenue until 125 and continue into the Bronx. 4. 57th or Canal Street Flip. The worst option of the bunch but it’s better than nothing.
  4. That’s an interesting concept for the Rockaway Beach branch. I would back this up if there was a more geographical explanation for this. I’m assuming the following would have to happen: The AirTrain’s Terminal would be rebuilt to allow for an extension and would run either via 164th Street or Kissena/Parsons Blvd. Lefferts Blvd would also have to be rebuilt to allow for an extension to the Van Wyck. One thing that I’m confused about is how does this RBB LightRail Train, get to LaGuardia from Woodhaven Blvd? I’m assuming Junction Blvd is not an option cause it’s to the East of what you’re proposing to run your line on. Will this version of the RBB still have any physical track connections to the subway or no? One last note is that I like how you’re using the AirTrain to better serve the communities in Queens.
  5. I have, but that game has its limitations (Which kind of bothers me)
  6. I see the notions that both of you guys have upon Northern Blvd and why it is a bad idea to extend the to points east of Queens Plaza/LIC. I agree with these notions, But if we had to build Northern Blvd RIGHT NOW, then I’ll have to say that the would be our Best Bet. The way that @JeremiahC99 explained is one way to extend it. Another way (and this option is slightly more preferable) is to rebuild 36 with 2 outer tracks that lead to Northern Blvd. The S/B Tracks could be built in a DeKalb and Chambers style of Platforms. Then the tracks could run under Sunnyside for a brief moment and then up Northern Blvd. Later on, you could then extend the up Northern via 50th or 57th Street and using the 11th Street Cut to replace the . However, this idea would force you to deinterline QBL 100% Which wouldn’t sell well with commuters in Jamaica. I personally don’t agree with this setup, but it’s just fun to think about how certain things can be built in different ways.
  7. Well, I could do that. But then I’d be forced to make changes such as Permanently Deinterlining QBL in order for it to work.
  8. I guess that’s fair enough. The only reason why I have SAS Trains moved over to 3rd Avenue between 47th Street and Points North is in provision of a nonstop Express between Lexington 63rd and 125th for the . As for not adding any additional stops along the super Express between Queens Plaza and Forest Hills is because it would defeat the purpose of this line being , well, A Super-Express. What could happen is that this Super Express idea could start off as a line reroute. Later on, connections to a new SAS tunnel under 57th Street can come to fruition. I also want to incorporate a Northern Blvd Subway line in some way.
  9. Then we’ll rebuild it with a better design.
  10. Super Sentai. Its the Japanese counterpart to Power Rangers, but more enjoyable and in some cases a bit more mature.
  11. Maybe, but you’d have to Deinterline Queens Blvd () and create an interlocking north of Court Square on the so that it can turn at Queens Plaza.
  12. First off. No one from Queens Blvd is trying to go ALL THE WAY to Coney Island. If the did, they’d likely stick to the . As for the being on Queens Blvd, while I don’t agree with it, I can only see it work between Western Queens and points of Brooklyn. Now yes, the transfer at Court Square does exist but it’s a pain in the ass sometimes. But for now, let’s just leave the at Court Square until we have no other choice but to extend it (Which seems like a long way off)
  13. Not to mention the congestion caused by motorists on that street. Which usually occurs between 9AM to 8:30 or 9 PM from my observation’s on a GOOD day.
