  1. The G is gonna be so different, I can't believe it...
  2. Broadway Local, Queens Blvd local, & the Rockaways Northbound terminal: City Hall lower level (this northbound terminal is actually displayed on an R32 rollsign) Southbound terminal: Rockaway Park-Beach 116 St
  3. Man, I really hope that the E gets some R211's.
  4. The original plan was to have express trains on the lower level of City Hall station, while local trains would have stopped on the upper level as a terminal station. The lower level of Canal St however, was supposed to be a Canal St crosstown line separate from the 4-track mainline above. Had the original plans went through, the MTA could have possibly studied an uptown extension & connection to the BMT Canarsie line, forming a new 4-track line.
  5. I see what you're saying, but Whitehall St is not meant to be a terminal and is a bottleneck for northbound trains.
  6. Instead of terminating trains at Whitehall St, can't the MTA just terminate trains on the lower level of City Hall?
  7. Let's also not forget the & (11) train extensions towards College Point & Bayside. They can still be built. However, the only issue is that the train has one southbound branch with no indication of a corresponding bellmouth other than the former Queensboro Bridge connection, which should have never been demolished. The Queensboro Bridge connection would have facilitated the College Point or Bayside branch depending on the route length & ridership demand. The Queensboro Bridge connection would have been named the (11) train as seen in an R62/A rollsign.
  8. Did you know that there's bellmouth's on the express tracks on the IND South Brooklyn/Culver line? These bellmouth's were for a proposed line down Fort Hamilton Pkwy-10th Avenue and the Staten Island tunnel, but now it's just the F operating on the express tracks. There seems to be no mention of it and it should really be considered in the future. Its like Worth St 2.0.
  9. What if the MTA built the Worth St line today? Where would it go? Grand Avenue? Utica Avenue? Myrtle Ave-Central Ave to Howard beach?
  10. We need the or to run via Worth St & East Broadway, while the runs to Chambers St-WTC.
  11. The 42 St shuttle is officially 6 cars long which means that the MTA can test the new tech trains, which would be very interesting to witness.
  12. Build the Worth St line to Union Avenue. It can restore the South 4th St shell.
  13. This is a South 4th St Union Avenue bound K local train, the next and last stop is South 4 St Union Avenue.
  14. I wish the Chrystie St connection didn't exist and used the bellmouth's at Whitehall St as a replacement for the Ashland Place connection in order to get rid of the Nassau loop.
  15. Not sure if it has been discovered yet or if it even exists, but there is supposedly an abandoned tunnel or station under Fresh Pond Road and Myrtle Avenue.
  16. No hope for the useless Laguardia Airtrain which means that we can possibly extend the Astoria Line instead. Today is a great day.
  17. 3 to dyre av, 2 to 148, and 5 to wakefield is more like it.
  18. Why doesn't the MTA focus on de-interlining? This is a serious question.
  19. I still don't understand why there is no form of Nassau St service on the 4th Ave subway in 2021, it really boggles my mind. Sure, it may have carried air, but we'll need that extra capacity for an improved NYC Subway.
  20. I wouldn't remove the Z from the system just yet, I would make it run 4th avenue local with the northbound terminal being Chambers St and the southbound terminal being Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue via West End. It would be similar to the Nassau loop service pattern, but it wont ever touch the Manhattan Bridge ever again.
  21. You're right, the J does need CBTC while the Z is considered non-essential.
