  1. At this rate the is better off hiring those people pushers on the Tokyo Metro. https://bpmforreal.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/subway-pushers-in-tokyo.jpg
  2. Also people are forgetting that the Port Authority proposed this since they own a lot of land in Red Hook. Do not forget about the Red Hook Container Terminal. A lot of that land is theirs. If they can get this subway extension then they can flip it for a lot of cash. Something like the World Trade Center, but at a much larger scale.
  3. Interesting fact however was that the R68, and R68A's were supposed to come with new technology. However the was so shocked by the issues they encountered with the R44, and R46's that they went with the most archaic technology that they could come with. If you ever wanted a look at what the R68, and R68A's were supposed to look like they would have looked like the trains that runs on the Tren Urbano Metro in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Though the is about to overhaul the R68, and R68A's so they will come with some new technology soon.
  4. Supposedly it has been moved to the proposed section for now. It is to be decided later on whether the line should be built.
  5. Monorails are a terrible idea for New York City. Already in Newark they have to replace the Newark (monorail) Airtrain only after 20 years of service. You might as well construct a subway line actually.
  6. I would rather see the extended into Queens. Serving J.F.K. Airport, and the southeastern areas of New York City is more important than a one station extension into a former swamp. Also you have to remember that the areas south of Brooklyn College along with most of the Utica Avenue area was former swampland also. That was why the original proposals showed them as being elevated for the Nostrand Avenue Line south of Brooklyn College, and for the whole Utica Avenue Line as well. The water table is extremely high there. Similar to that of south Florida. Modern tunneling methods could help, but judging from the recent works of the into high water table areas such as South Ferry along with 34th Street you might as well build an elevated line.
  7. There might be some use for a new tunnel. If they build the I.N.D. Worth Street Line which will probably never happen there already.
  8. There is a fantasy map play thing made by Michael Calcagno. If you want you could play around with it. I have it on here. http://s9.postimg.org/ix27yxcil/yourmap.gif Another one that I color coded. I had always planned on making it a full subway fantasy map. I might do it sometime. http://i740.photobucket.com/albums/xx43/Roadcruiser1/yourmapblank.gif
  9. What worries me is the fact that they will not do that. The best idea would be to use the nearby highways. Underneath the Brooklyn Queens Expressway there is enough room to build a light rail system that can be kept away from traffic. In Red Hook it can be elevated, but if it will run into traffic then it will fail instantly.
  10. I rather see this turned into a light rail. You have so many nearby highways, and wide roads along this route except for the Red Hook area, but even then you can elevate it. Once you have such a system it is possible to continue to expand it, and connect it to other light rail proposals. Maybe you can even do a study to see if you can extend such a line across the Verrazano Narrows Bridge.
  11. The is holding a meeting about the new soon. I think I should go, and convince them to extend the line to South Brooklyn at least during rush hours to help back the , and finally solve the problem caused by the removal of the brown .
  12. You can't have three services running on two tracks. . At 8 trains per hour that is too little of service. It has to be at least 15 trains per hour per line to provide decent service. .
  13. I would like to see another tunnel built near the B.M.T. 60th Street Tunnels. . They are pretty much already at overcapacity. . Keep the I.N.D. 63rd Street Tunnels for the I.N.D. 2nd Avenue Subway, and the I.N.D. Queens Boulevard Super Express using the so that way you can increase the current capacity of trains running on the I.N.D. Queens Boulevard Line too as well. .
