  1. Other replies in bold. You do know that most trams run on Street Level. So building connections is kinda unnecessary given the walking distance between the tram and the subway. In response to CPW Deinterlining. I see 3 Alternatives to this problem 1) We make the and Express and the and Local. The only change that would need to happen to preserve Express service for both Branches is that and Service would swap. At that point, I’d just say to rearrange the Yard Placement’s for the and . (Maybe have the and share the same fleet. IDK) or just have yard transfer moves. 2) Same situation but in reverse. Express and Local. In this case, no yard moves would need to occur. But if you plan on having the and be full Local Routes. Then you’d need to swap the roles of the with the in order to not create any new bottlenecks. Problem is that the will become a Super Long Route. 3) Build 2 Switches (one N/B and one S/B) North of 50th Street Station and expand the 50th Street Platforms. To be Honest, I don’t see how installing these switches south of 50th Street is feasible at all, or maybe that’s just me. This can work for either scenario I listed above or even with our current Service patterns. But in my opinion, this alternative fits better with option 2 that I laid out above. Meaning the following service pattern would be this: 168th Street - The Rockaway’s. CPW Local; 8th Avenue Express; Fulton Street Express. Weekends and Overnights, trains are extended to 207th. 207th Street - Brighton Beach. Full Express from CPW to Brighton. Bedford Park Blvd/145th Street-Lefferts Blvd. CPW Local, 8th Avenue Express; Fulton Street Express. Does not run overnights. Same as is. via Fulton from Astoria tin Euclid.
  2. to Grand Central > to Roosevelt > to Union Tpke > Q10. A lot of work but test it out and see how it does for you. On a a side note. Why does the run Reverse Peak trains from Broadway Junction? Is it done to fill a gap in service?
  3. The problem with this is that there’s only a side street for the Q52 and Q53 Select Services to Short turn. Not to mention that (as an occasional rider of the Woodhaven Bus lines) most service north of Rockaway Blvd can be inconsistent.
  4. The apparently. I’d prefer that the be sent there via Fulton Express.
  5. This is not overkill. An from Astoria to Euclid only Requires a new tunnel between Whitehall and Court Street (NYTM). Doing this will increase capacity on the Fulton Street line by 50% and allow trains to run Express to Lefferts Blvd or the Rockaway's. While it’d be nice to have subways in outer Queens, I wouldn’t extend everything cause it’s overkill and some of these proposals are not feasible. Psersonally, I prefer these ideas: To Francis Lewis via Northern or a Branch to College Point. A new bus terminal will be built somewhere close to Francis Lewis (Which I’ll go more in depth later). to Springfield (Express between Forest Hills and 179. In order for this to work, either trains would need to be extended to 179, the Queens Bypass would need to be built, or Queens Blvd needs to be (mostly) De-Interlined. Maybe this can work with the arrangement with one of the locals going to 179. And just like the extension. A bus terminal would need to be built around Hillside and SpringField/Braddock since the current set up for the Street won’t allow for it. Doing this would allow for a variety of Route Changes to Buses along Hillside and Adjacent Streets. LaGuardia Link Train (Or when Broadway is De-Interlined. Nuff said. to Laurelton because there is Space for a New Yard along the LIRR Atlantic/Rockaway Branch. Or to Cambria Heights via Merrick Blvd and Linden Blvd. I prefer the First Option TBH. One Stop Extension to Merrick/168. If possible, you could extend THAT to Cambria Heights instead of the . It could Stop Short of Merrick, then Turn Down 168, then Head via Merrick and Linden Blvd’s. With only Extending the Current Subways in Queens, you can achieve the following benefits: • Making a Better Bus Network for Queens • Promote Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) • Better Subway Access throughout Queens.
  6. There were GT’s at my home stop this entire time!?!?! If so, which direction and what’s this “Bus Wi-Fi” that you speak of?
  7. That’s good. I read some of these improvements a few days ago. It’s good that they’re looking to Improve Myrtle, Sutphin/Archer and Main Street. Those Stations do get crowded at times and with the current layout, it doesn’t really help that much.
  8. TBH. Just by looking at these pictures, it’d be cool if the subway had more natural light coming down to the platform.
  9. in the middle of AM Rush when there are no delays.
  10. I mean, you could do All Express in one Direction like how they’re doing work for Queens Blvd CBTC. Or you can try putting a BRT on Lexington which would be a Really tough sell.
  11. The correct term is operator. I don’t drive my trains down the road now, do I? Second, it was a 46
  12. My train came in at about 10 Mph today at 63rd Drive-Rego Park. And the operator kept doing that til I got to Roosevelt. I’m scratching my head like “Why is the T/O going so slow?”
  13. Don’t know for the first Question Yes for the Second Question
  14. Other replies are in bold. My definition of a bottleneck is an area in the system that slows things down for everyone and has a negative impact on our subways Capacity such as reducing the number of trains that we can run on a subway line. So bottlenecks in my eyes would include: • Grade Level Merges. • Flying Junctions (Which becomes even worse bottlenecks with Poorly Scheduled trains) • Poor Terminal Operational Practice’s • Poor Signaling (excessive GT’s at Areas where they don’t need to be) • Sharp Curves. • Dwell Times. (Even worse if the Station has a poor Design) Can these bottlenecks be fixed? Not all of them, that’s for sure. But for the ones that can be fixed, what would it take to fix them? It’ll require are a few upgrades and Reroutes if necessary. Anyways, thank you for the feedback, I appreciate it.
  15. Thanks. I rated each bottleneck by how impactful each one is. Green stands for minor bottlenecks, while red is vice versa. Yellow is sorta in the middle.
  16. I though three times before posting this here: Here’s an NYC Subway map that lists all bottlenecks throughout the System. Some bottlenecks include sharp curves, Poor Terminal Operations, or Service’s using interlocking’s at Grade Level. Let me know what you all think of it: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zW5OcTK4Zkc1_vlH-8LQ73k6UdrhA8hV&usp=sharing
  17. I updated my map of subway bottlenecks, and this should be the complete result. @RR503 @Union Tpke and everyone else, let me know which bottlenecks I missed or need to change so that the information is accurate: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zW5OcTK4Zkc1_vlH-8LQ73k6UdrhA8hV&usp=sharing
  18. @Union Tpke I updated my map of NYC Subway Bottlenecks, but it's still a work in Progress.
  19. thank you for pointing those bottlenecks out but I recommend reading my last post a little more carefully.
