Local or express

When I ride the D train from pacific to 36st the R train always always catches up to the D train at 36st. why bother going express if the R train catches up anyway. the D train always slows down between prospect ave and 36st. why not go full speed express all the way to 36st.

 

One more thing. I miss the B on the west end line.

Im not entirely sure, but there could be a timer placed just north of 36 St, which is why Coney Island Bound D and N trains take a drastic speed loss around the Prospect Av, and 25th St area. I remember when the D first came back to Brooklyn in February of 2004, there was major work going on , on the Coney Island Bound Express track, just north of 36th St, and into 36th St station; Switch and track replacement project, and this resulted in D and N trains pulling into 36th St going like 10-15 mph. The tracks were Brand new, not concreted into the ground and sitting on concrete and wooden blocks for support.

 

Id love to see the B and D swap back to NORMAL.:D

I take the R from court st and I wait for the D on pacific st. sometimes the D comes about the same time as the R and then they both meet at 36st like if they both made the same stops to 36st. the express run should save a commuter at least 5-10 minutes but it doesnt. I just think its dumb.

The Romeo train may catch up beacuse of a Nancy Perhaps in Front of the Delta, where does your Delta train pass that Romeo Train?

 

Thats the question...

 

I know on Mondays when i work on ther Delta Unless that train is at 25 Street LEAVING the station no way any Local is catching up to my Delta..

 

There are more timers on F3 track going into 36th Street than F1 Track..

 

Then of coruse 9 times out of 10 Murphy will HOLD that Express for the connection..

 

So sometimes it dont matter..

One thing I can say for sure is that 4th Avenue local flys down 4th Avenue at a high rate of speed. Sometimes at a faster rate in between the local stations than an express D or N on the express. I guess it depends on the conditions of the trains.

I agree. Sometimes it feels like the (R) local is trying to catch up with the (D) or (N) on the express. Only southbound. I never noticed it northbound.
