  1. I remember this being brought up a lot, the MTA's end goal is uniformity in line fleets (which cannot be achieved until the full delivery of the R211s) so the best possible lineup once R211s are fully here would be -R211: maybe some others -R179: and some others -R160: CI Yard trains such as (and others) -R68:
  2. This happened yesterday. I'm not exactly sure what happened, but from what I saw, my train stopped at 135th in the exact manner it would normally - and the doors didn't open. It stopped, then started moving again. I think this one was the operator's fault, seems they forgot to open the doors, especially considering it was normal at every other stop. Might also be something relating to the R32s in general.
  3. @LaGuardia Link N Tra Your plan is nice, but I would recommend extending the to a 72nd Street LL even though you said you weren't too keen on it. Because there is no connection the Broadway Line at the north end of the an extension would make all the difference. You could also 4-track Northern and run the there from 72/79th Street. Also you should keep the designation. The basically has no elements of it present here, and the " is older" argument doesn't work as well as it did with the . Additionally, the could use some intermediate stations between Astoria and LaGuardia.
  4. @LaGuardia Link N Tra You should extend the H to the RBB, although the RBB isn't the most feasible place to build a subway line.
  5. Not sure if this counts as a bump, but I was made a train fan by either Thomas the Tank Engine (11/10 would watch again) or just looking at a train and deciding "Hey this is fascinating!"
  6. 100% - If you want to do a shuttle to the Rockaways then one or both of the locals needs to go somewhere else like 73rd avenue or 179th Street.
  7. This is the speech equivalent of shooting yourself in the foot.
  8. Here's something interesting for y'all https://pedestrianobservations.com/2018/11/29/new-york-city-subway-expansion-proposal/
  9. Interesting idea having both and run down the line. Should only be one (the ) though. If they go along with the MX plan would be the best name for it.
  10. I have a simpler approach to the Jamaica situation- I'll have the el stay, but (as i previously stated) the section between Bway Junction and Crescent Street would be replaced with a three track el/subway along Jamaica Ave rather than Fulton Street. (P) replace service in Brooklyn by swapping the and in Brooklyn and moving to Williamsburg so that you can have a (P) <P> pair running on Brighton Line and the to Bay Ridge-101 St. The can run to Myrtle Ave and the will terminate at Broadway Junction at which point the , rerouted to Fulton Street, will have a transfer, and the will join the new subway and el to Merrick Blvd. This isn't exactly adding capacity-those plans are long term and I'll come up with some later.
  11. I was thinking that the 's route would be replaced by the routes, and the would only run rush hours Essex Street-Hollis, also this could be a rush hour extension of the . Future SAS service would go to Northern because the QBL plan takes out the possibility of a Queens Bypass service. I do think we should get a South Fourth Street Subway (different name should apply for the new service) with the , something on SAS, and the I will think of a routing later.
  12. I'm going with a light rail along Fordham Road. This would connect to all the major Bronx lines (except the but it will connect in Manhattan)
  13. @Jova42R are your line plans part of that map in your signature? Just curious.
  14. Here is an updated plan of mine showing what an SAS with 4 tracks should look like. - Second Ave Local, Express between 125-72nd. Fordham Road/3rd Ave to Bay Ridge via 3rd Avenue in the Bronx, SAS, Water Street or Nassau, Montague, 4th Avenue (U) - Second Ave Express, Bartow Ave/Bronx to Coney Island via 3rd Avenue, SAS, north side Manhattan Bridge tracks, Brighton Express Second Ave Local, 179th Street/Queens to Brighton Beach via Hillside Ave, Queens Blvd, Queens Bypass, SAS, north side Manhattan Bridge, Brighton Local Notes and other plans: will run to a 3 track Northern Blvd line (U) displace to Metropolitan Ave and Bway Junction respectively, and to West End. displaces to Fulton, will run to Hollis and to Euclid runs as a rush hour service between Essex and Jamaica plan for QBL, will run to RBB, splitting off at 63rd Drive. and will run the same routes so they might have to be integrated to an service, another option is that Lefferts runs can be while Far Rock runs can be Thoughts?
