A few interesting subway service changes for tomorrow 7/10/09

Recommended Posts

I got a few emails about some interesting subway service changes for tomorrow.

 

The main one is this:

 

(D) trains run in two sections:

1. Between 205 St and the 34 St (D) station

2. Between the 34 St (N) station and Stillwell Av

To continue your trip, transfer at 34 St

Weekday, Jul 10, 10 AM to 3 PM, Friday

Note: (D trains run on the (N) between 42 St and Pacific Sts

 

No (D) trains between 34 and West 4 Sts

Take the (F) instead

Weekday, Jul 10, 10 AM to 3 PM, Friday

Note: (D) trains run on the (N) between 42 and Pacific Sts

 

No (D) trains between Grand and Pacific Sts

Special Shuttle trains run between the West 4 St and

Grand St stations

Take the (F)at West 4 St instead

Weekday, Jul 10, 10 AM to 3 PM, Friday

 

(D) trains run on the (N) between 34 St and Pacific Sts

Weekday, Jul 10, 10 AM to 3 PM, Friday

This service change affects one or more ADA accessible stations. Please call 718-596-8585 or (TTY) 718-596-8273, 6 AM to 10 PM for help with planning your trip. For more information click on the mta.info link in this e-mail and read station signs.

 

And also the (W) and (;) are suspended completely.

 

Any thoughts about this?

This is quite interesting, almost represents shades of the Broadway (D) train in the 1980s, except it operates along the West End Line now, so it'd look more like the 2001-2004 (W).

 

I wonder if they'll use the Yellow D then.

Good G/O might do it! But I dont think the (D)s would end at 34th St for the BWAY trains, it might end at 57th instead seeing that the (Q)s are using the Exp too. Unless im wrong..

 

And Im wondering if the (D) will stick with R68s or borrows some off CI..?

 

Also why pick friday? Doesnt make sense on a Mid week...

I guess for emergency track work. I'll be out tomorrow doing this GO.

 

That's horrible! I've always anticipated that if anything would go wrong, it would be the south side first since it wasn't the last to be reconstructed and that it had been rendered useless for a longer time than the north side.

That means nothing since track conditions are affected by many things. If you have alot of trains with flat wheels traveling over a section of rail for a long time, you will get a broken rail. Usually when they say emergency track work, it is because of a broken rail. Now I would be suprised if they were closing the north side because of a structural problem.

Of course, Im not in NY for this G.O. :mad:

 

When this G.O. usually occurs, the following service patterns are put into play:

 

(D) Broadway Express to Times Square-42 St; relay north of Times Square.

(N)(R)(Q) Broadway Local.

(N) Canal St-Bridge Station to 57 St; Local

(R) Whitehall to 57 Sts (Normal).

(Q) Canal St-Bridge Station to Midtown-57 St/7 Av.

 

----

 

The (D) will most likely use its Concourse R68s on both halves of the split line. The so - called DBdwyBig.png will not return, as there are only a few Rollsigns out there that include the Broadway DBdwyBig.png; However, you might see a couple, but don't expect to see a lot of them...

 

Expect Mad(ness) masses at 42 and 34 Sts, along with DeKalb Av and Pacific Sts...

 

The old (W) is making a comeback ! :cool:

When (N) was running Times Sq express when (R) was diverted, (Q) was running local.

 

I wonder if (N)(Q) is going to be local tomorrow because of (D) on Broadway?

I think this is to facilitate emergency track work, maybe a broken rail.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the fire on the Manhattan Bridge

___________

And maybe this is an emergency G/O cuz emailers get G/Os that are mergency when not listed as reqular G/O

 

But why not do this over the weekend?

There was a truck that caught fire on the Manhattan Bridge yesterday. But that was on the South side of the bridge.

The track fire was in an area that was all concrete. What made the fire so bad was that it was a stack of new ties soaked in creas oil and a mix of litter. That happened years ago and this is not the cause of the GO.

wow they should just suspend the (D) completely i mean the (MTA) is making all these changes for the (D) they can just make a shuttle from coney island to 34 street that would take for ever in NY traffic but i think its better then switching to a bunch of trains.

Well, as it turns out, they canceled it. I got 4 e-mails at around 9:35 about it. Oh, well. Guess it wasn't needed, and that's good because that would've caused a lot of confusion.
