(A) and (C) Fulton Street: R32s all day!

(F) and (G) Culver Line: I like the Culver Viaduct and I hope the TA bring it back to a beautiful state once again.

(J)/(Z) Jamaica Line (Broadway-Brooklyn portion): When the (J) and (Z) run express from Marcy to Myrtle, those trains haul you-know-what! Especially if it's an R42! Sometimes I'm lucky to take a run on the (J) going express from Myrtle to Broadway Junction.

(L) Canarsie Line: I want to live by the (L) someday, particularly in North Side Williamsburg.

(R) Fourth Avenue: I'm a frequent (R) rider, mostly on weekends when I'm heading home. I just wish I could catch an R32/R42 more often! :mad:

 

I'm not really a fan of the Brooklyn IRT Lines so much, but I'm loving the fact that the (5) goes to Brooklyn during weekdays now. I wish this were the case when I was still living along Nostrand Avenue (9-10 years ago!).

Lines I like:

 

1) (L). Always liked it. Trains are frequent and on time. Cars are clean. Almost always possible to get a seat at Broadway Junction, except a few morning rush hour trains.

 

2) (5). Don't like the line so much, but often take it to its Brooklyn College-Flatbush Avenue terminal and transfer to the Q35, which is a bus route I really like because of the scenic views and pleasant neighborhoods it goes through.

 

3) (A). Gotta like it; its what mostly takes me to the Rockaways. Express service is Brooklyn is extremely fast and efficient. Hate the (A) in Queens: the local run, and having to transfer from Lefferts to Rockaways trains and possibly to the Rock Park (S) spoils every journey.

 

I don't really dislike any line. The (C) is infrequent, often dirty, slow and makes too many stops, and terminating at Euclid takes out much of its potential utility (sending it to Lefferts will improve (C) ridership as well as (A) service), and only 8-cars long, but the R32s with their RFWs are the one redeeming quality.

The (L) has some of the most interesting station tilework, but it also has an objectionable amount of hipsterism. I'll say the (F) is my favorite then.
