Should be more than 561 feet long. The (7) runs trains of 11 cars that are 51 feet long each.

 

No, the (7) was never a BMT/IND line. It was a BMT/IRT line (as was the Astoria line) until 1949 when it became IRT only.

 

I can't answer the maximum speed question.

wasnt the Astoria Line IRT?

 

So im guessing the IRT and BMT division swapped the lines

 

IRT Astoria > BMT Astoria

BMT Flushing > IRT Flushing

They didn't swap. They shared the lines.

Weren't both 'IRT width'? And only when the Astoria side became BMT only, didn't they shave the platforms to allow the wider BMT trains to be in use?

Yes, that's exactly what happened.
