Who knows if the (5) runs out of Jerome for a tasty R142A and of course the KB Orion VII NG with the odd (5) sign as i showed before. I guess this g/o is to restore the local track south of Bronx pk east?

Just for once, I'd like to see the (5) "via Jerome Avenue" to compliment the (4) if the (5) isn't running between East 180th Street and 149th Street-Concourse.

 

Again..that would make too much sense. lol

 

That has its pros and cons

 

Pros

-Complements the 4 therefore extra service

-Epic railfanning oppurtunity

Cons

-Do they even have a program for that?..they probably do but I've never heard it

-The 5 would borrow sets from the 4 regardless if it ended at 149 or Woodlawn lol...so it going farther up the line would require more sets to keep a decent headway on the 5..they'd have to sacrifice the reliability of either service...but theyre going to the same place if the 5's going to Woodlawn so who gives? the 5 is more of a supplementary line minus the 5 stops on the Dyre line anyway.

Look at the brochure for the (F)(G) busing this weekend. It has a map VERY similar to SubwayWeekender's.

 

Also, these 2 are in effect next weekend:

 

No (D) trains between Pacific and 34 Sts

The (N) and free shuttle buses provide alternate service

Weekend 12:01 AM Sat to 5 AM Mon, Nov 21 - 23

 

Coney Island-bound (N) trains run on the (R) from Canal St to DeKalb Av

Weekend, 12:01 AM Sat to 5 AM Mon, Nov 21 - 23

 

Note that they didn't say (D) runs in 2 sections, transfer at 34 St for service at the (Q) platform like they did last time this GO took place.

I guess because they didn't want confusion over whether or not the Broadway half of the (D) will run via lower Manhattan.
