  1. I guess this has something to do with the slow speeds for southbound trains near Prospect Park for the past couple of weeks due to work in the area. The Service Alerts said they were supposed to end on Friday.

    The closest thing to GPS tracking it has is the Transit app, but that only shows where the bus should be based on the schedule.

    Is it the Dyre Avenue stations not blinking?

    That last shot is amazing!
  11. It seems that they'll have the BAE Systems HybriDrive. https://www.pressconnects.com/story/money/2018/09/21/bae-hybrid-propulsion-systems-used-westchester/1381841002/
  12. It's interesting how the station name signs are incorporated into the tiles. Also, the underpass at the north end of the station had a very unusual slightly clean smell.

    The extension to Coney Island is rather interesting. An extension down Nostrand isn't the most important thing at the moment, and Utica Avenue line would be a better use of resources as it would serve a currently underserved area farther from the subway. Anybody near Nostrand Avenue who has to go to CI can take a bus to one of the lines going to CI. Also, it misses the opportunity have a station or two in Manhattan Beach to be an alternative to the B1 or B49 to the subway. Also building it out in the water may just cost enough money to instead build SAS to Yonkers.

    There are a number of places where adjacent infrastructure limits station length to 480 feet, like Essex Street, Chambers Street, or Broadway Junction, for example. There are other places where stations would end up too close together. At Marcy Avenue due to the curve to the WBB the station an extension would have to be built to the east, and the station would get too close to Hewes Street. Of course in that case Hewes Street would likely have to close, and maybe a new Union Avenue station could be built to transfer to the .
