  1. And to correct myself on the , that goes to Whitehall, not Broad. Also, if there is a available, there would be a shuttle between Broad and Fulton Street.
  2. Here goes with this massive headache: runs in two sections: 242nd Street to 96th Street 18th Street-South Ferry Shuttle operates between 96th Street and Columbus Circle using the uptown tracks, express southbound (stopping at 66th Street), local northbound operates in two sections: 241st Street to 110th Street-CPN Flatbush Avenue-14th Street operates in two sections: 148th Street-135th Street (Shuttle) New Lots Avenue-14th Street (Note: Some and trains terminate northbound at Chambers Street) operates in two sections: Woodlawn-Grand Central Utica Avenue-Wall Street with LIMITED service to Fulton Street operates as a shuttle between Dyre Avenue and East 180th Street ONLY operates between Pelham Bay Park and Grand Central ONLY (Note: Some trains terminate at 59th Street) (Note: There are single-track shuttle trains on the local tracks between 14th Street and Grand Central) operates in two sections: 207th Street-125th Street 59th Street-CC to Lefferts Boulevard or Far Rockaway and are suspended operates from 59th Street-CC to Euclid Avenue ONLY! operates in two sections: 205th Street to 145th Street 59th Street-CC to Coney Island Runs between Jamaica Center and Essex Street ONLY (Single-track shuttle operates between Essex Street and Bowery). trains run local in Manhattan north of Canal Street. runs as follows: Some trains operate as five-car trains from 95th Street-Bay Ridge to Broad Street station Some trains run 34th Street to 71st-Continental Some trains operate via the between DeKalb Avenue and Canal Street over the Manhattan Bridge and run regular route otherwise.
  3. Right: And even afterwards, it was not looked at as important. I used to ride through there to get to school in the '80s and always wondered why they never thought to do it.
  4. Next: Switching issues south of Broadway-Lafayette force any trains on the southbound "local" track to run to go to the Broadway-Brooklyn line at Essex Street. There are signal problems south of Whitehall Street leading to the Montague Tunnel, only allowing Nassau Street Line trains to access it. There is a rail condition on the northbound local track at 49th Street on the Broadway Line There is also a rail condition on the northbound level track at 50th Street-8th Avenue.
  5. Here goes. This assumes trains CAN cross over at Broadway-Lafayette: Runs in two sections: 242nd Street to 14th Street Shuttle between Chambers Street and South Ferry Runs as follows: Some trains run 241st Street to 34th Street-Penn Station Some trains run Chambers Street to Flatbush Avenue Some trains run via the between 149th Street and Nevins Street Runs in two sections: 148th Street to 34th Street-Penn Station Chambers Street to New Lots Avenue runs in two sections: 207th Street to 34th Street-Penn Station with LIMITED service to 14th Street-8th Avenue (local in Manhattan) Canal Street to Lefferts Boulevard OR Far Rockaway. runs with the after DeKalb Avenue to 96th Street-2nd Avenue, where it terminates. runs Canal Street-Euclid Avenue ONLY! runs in two sections: 205th Street to 34th Street Broadway-Lafayette to Coney Island runs from Jamaica Center to 34th Street-Penn Station ONLY!! (Runs on express track southbound) There is also a shuttle train from the Chambers-WTC platform to Canal Street single-tracked from the uptown local platform. runs in two sections: 179th Street to 34th Street Coney Island to 2nd Avenue (Note: Some trains terminate at Delancey Street) is extended to 71st-Continental to replace the in Queens. runs normal route to Essex Street, then via the to Chambers Street, where it terminates. runs via the Montague Tunnel and local track on the Broadway line in Manhattan to accommodate the running with the on the express track.
  6. At least this is on a Sunday and not during rush hour, when it would have been a huge mess.
  7. You might have to do such as two single-track levels of elevated tracks over streets that are more narrow than the original line was on (in such spots), especially since some of the old ROW now has buildings on it.
  8. The entire Atlantic complex would be affected by this as well. WIth that in mind: and run their regular routes to Wall Street! also runs from Eastern Parkway-Flatbush Avenue also runs from Eastern Parkway-New Lots Avenue. and run their regular routes to Borough Hall ONLY (some trains terminate at Bowling Green) Single-track shuttle trains operate from the platforms at Borough Hall to Nevins Street. is suspended runs regular route to Broadway-Lafayette, then via the to 2nd Avenue, where it terminates runs regular route to Jay Street, then with the to Euclid Avenue Some trains run regular route to Bergen Street or terminate at Jay Street. runs regular route to Bergen Street ONLY. and run via the tunnel and replace the to Jay Street-Metrotech, where they terminate (some trains continue to DeKalb Avenue) runs in two sections: 71st-Continental to Whitehall Street 36th Street-4th Avenue to 95th Street-Bay Ridge is suspended There are two special through shuttle trains that run through Coney Island Station, both beginning at 36th Street-4th Avenue: Via West End, skipping 9th Avenue, stopping on the platform at Coney Island to the Culver Line, terminating at Church Avenue on the Via Sea Beach,stopping on the platform at Coney Island and via the Brighton Line, terminating at Prospect Park on the In addition to the regular Franklin Avenue Shuttle, there are express shuttle buses between Prospect Park and Franklin Avenue on the There are also shuttle buses: Between Jay Street and Church Avenue on the Between Jay Street and 36th Street on the Between Jay Street and Prospect Park on the Between Borough Hall and Franklin Avenue on the
  9. Here goes: is extended into Brooklyn and runs with the to Franklin Avenue and then to Utica Avenue, where it terminates. runs local in Manhattan from 59th to 34th Street-Penn Station and run regular routes to Prospect Park, where they terminate (some trains continue to Church Avenue with some stopping at Parkside Avenue). and run regular routes to Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center ONLY!! runs normal route to 34th Street-Penn Station, where it terminates. and run regular route to Bergen Street ONLY. is extended to Jay Street-Metrotech station to replace the in the Montague Tunnel. runs in two sections: 71st-Continental to Canal Street (Tunnel Level) 36th Street-4th Avenue to 95th Street-Bay Ridge There are two special through shuttle trains that run through Coney Island Station, both beginning at 36th Street-4th Avenue: Via West End, stopping on the platform at Coney Island to the Culver Line, terminating at Church Avenue on the Via Sea Beach,stopping on the platform at Coney Island and via the Brighton Line, terminating at Kings Highway on the
  10. Simple: would run to Hunterspoint Avenue and terminate at worst. Any such reconstruction would be done in phases over a few years. They would not do all of it at once, but it would take out portions of the and the when the Queensboro Plaza area is worked on. NEXT: New rounds of rail conditions at key spots happening all at once: On the northbound local track at Mott Haven-138th Street in the Bronx. In the area of the switches between Nevins St. and Atlantic Avenue preventing trains from going past there on the IRT. In the area of switches between 34th Street-Penn Station and Times Square on the Broadway-7th Avenue Line preventing trains from going through there. Reroute!
  11. The would NOT be affected by a Central Park situation unless it's closer to Columbus Circle as its a considerable distance away, especially from 96th-110th Street . and would NOT be affected by the WTC as they are on Broadway, a block west unless said power failure ALSO went there. As for the rest (assuming the above is correct): ends at Chambers Street southbound (normal service otherwise) trains run via the between 149th Street and Nevins Street (assuming the Lexington line is unaffected) runs between Wall Street-William Street and New Lots Avenue ONLY! runs as follows: 207th Street to 125th Street 59th Street to 34th Street-8th Avenue (skips 50th Street, single track shuttle trains) High Street-Lefferts Boulevard or Far Rockaway. Single track shuttle train operates between High Street and Fulton Street and run from 59th Street-CC to Coney Island also runs from 205th Street-145th Street Lower Level is suspended runs regular route to 34th Street-8th Avenue, where it terminates. runs as follows: Some trains run via the between Roosevelt Avenue and Bergen Street. Some trains run regular route to 2nd Avenue and terminate there. Some trains run from Coney Island to York Street and terminate there. runs regular route to Marcy Avenue ONLY ( is suspended) runs in two sections: Shuttle between Metropolitan and Myrtle Avenue 2nd Avenue station to 71st-Continental via regular route. runs in two sections: As five car trains via regular route from 95th Street-Bay Ridge to Court Street in Brooklyn, then via the to Chambers Street, where it terminates. Canal Street (Tunnel Level) to 71st-Continental via regular route. runs from Canal Street (Tunnel Level) to Ditmars-Astroia via regular route.
  12. Forgot to add: is extended to 71st-Continental to replace the in Queens.
  13. operates in two sections: 207th Street-34th Street (local to 59th Street then express to 34th Street) Canal Street-Lefferts Boulevard or Far Rockaway operates from Whitehall Street station via the tunnel to Brighton Beach ONLY! runs from Canal Street-Euclid Avenue ONLY runs in two sections: 205th Street-34th Street via Broadway and SAS to 96th Street-2nd Avenue on the , where it terminates runs between Jamaica Center and 34th Street-8th Avenue ONLY Some trains run via the between Roosevelt Avenue and Bergen Street. Other trains run in two sections: 179th Street-34th Street Delancey Street-Coney Island is re-routed to Chambers Street on the and terminates there. LIMITED service between Ditmars Boulevard and 9th Avenue on the where such terminate to accommodate the terminating at Whitehall. There is shuttle service on the and platforms at Essex-Delancey Streets between there and Broadway-Lafayette (Trains from the platform stop at 2nd Avenue), trains from the platform do not). There is also shuttle bus service between West 4th and 34th Street stations to prevent overcrowding on the and Broadway lines.
  14. And you run into the same problem that my long-ago suggestion of having the become the Culver Express and run to Coney Island to replace the there: Broadway-Lafayette would have to handle three lines and in this case, stations north of there as far north as 34th would because the would have to go to the local tracks either between 34th and 42nd OR at West 4th southbound and from such northbound.
  15. My extension would be similar to 72nd-Amsterdam BUT would have the provisions to continue as an Amsterdam Avenue Subway, possibly first to 86th or 96th Street (and if 96th with a passageway to the at 96th as well) and then eventually all the way up Amsterdam Avenue. This would be three tracks all the way to have a peak-direction express or short-turn terminal spots.
