  6. Hey everybody!

     

    My best friend and I made a promise that we pass 8th grade and the specialized high school test, so NO REQUEST ACCEPTED FROM ME until further notice. You can request your signs from the people who are helping this thread.

     

    Good day!

     

    Understandable. Best of luck on the test btw. Ah, I remember taking that test so long ago (i.e. 2 years ago). :P

  7. The former Bx28, in my opinion, fascinates me because it had 2 weekday rush hour branches. One branch from Williamsbridge to Burnside Av/Concourse had one bus to and from Burnside Av during the AM and PM rush hours. The other branch was from Bedford Pk/Goulden - 205 to West Farms Sq, weekday rush hours only, and had more buses than the Burnside Av branch.

     

    Anyways, foam at the sign if you must.

     

    Amazing sign! :tup:

    Btw, was the Bedford Park to West Farms branch via Tremont & Jerome or what?

  8. May I get a few more please?

  9. I would have (L) train stops at 2nd Ave. and Avenue B instead of at 1st and 3rd Aves. 3rd Avenue is a given as it's only a block away from Union Sq., and walking to Alphabet City is a bitch depending on how far in you have to go (good luck if you're going to Ave. D...). Also, when (if) the SAS reaches down there in Phase 3 anyway it would make the 14th St. transfer to the that much easier. Similarly, I would add 2nd Ave. stations to the (F), (N)(Q)(R), (E)(M) and (7) lines. No one's going to want to walk 2 avenues down to the Lexington Ave. stations when the SAS opens, and 2nd Ave. is populated enough to warrant stations too. I doubt those are possible under existing conditions though.

     

    I agree with the (L) train idea.

     

    About the Second Av. stations, while they would be convenient stations, they wouldn't work:

     

    There is already a Second Av. station on the (F) (hence it's title, 2nd Av).

    The (E)(M) won't happen because the Queens-bound end of 53 St. - Lexington Av. is at, if not passed Third Av.

    Similar with the (N)(Q)(R) at 59 St. - Lexington Av. AND the (7) at Grand Central.

  10. The (6) actually has 3 terminals during the day

    Pelham Bay Park

    Parkchester

    3 Av-138th St (During the day several trains end their run there in the AM & PM going uptown and be sent back down) if you ever caught a (6) train announcement saying "This is a Brooklyn Bridge bound (6) local train" that was the train that terminated at 138th and those are not put-ins.

     

     

    Well, as 7LineFan had said a few posts above, similar issues happen on the (7). There are Queens-bound (7) trains that are scheduled to terminate at Willets Point, but their rollsigns still say to Main St. It's just announced that it's stopping short. As long as the announcer on the 3 Av-bound (6) mentions that it's stopping short (i.e. "This is a 3 AVENUE-138 STREET BOUND (6) train"), the signs won't make THAT big of a difference. Worst case scenario, they'll get off at 3 Av and continue their trip. Not too much of an inconvenience, because if they knew beforehand, they'd still be waiting for another train -- only difference would be waiting in Manhattan opposed to waiting at 3 Av.

  11. May I have a few please?

    Ah, one of my favorites, in fact. If only I adhered to it more.

    Amazing as usual, lance. Thanks. :P
