TRS Screenshot of what was the last known intended revenue service to operate via that connection. Is in the NYCT plan in the event that Amtrak goes on strike/is shut down and LIRR trains can't access NYP to keep as many people as possible off of the (E).

Oh yes, the (P) train. Almost became a reality again a while back. What was the plan to operate it anyway? I heard it was via Nassau St, Chrystie St, 6th Ave, and then 8th Ave via W4th.

Hi: The Chrystie Street connector was in use from July 1,1968 to August 27,1976. From 1968 to 1972 a rush hour service, the (KK) operated from the old 168th Street-Jamaica Terminal to 57th Street-Sixth Avenue then from 1973 until Friday August 27, 1976, it operated as the (K) on a shortened route from Eastern Parkway to 57th Street-Sixth Avenue.

 

In the days of (KK) (QJ) service, the (KK) made B Stops and the (QJ) made A Stops:

* 168th Street-Jamaica Terminal A/B

* 160th Street B

* Sutphin Boulevard A/B

* Queens Boulevard B

* Metropolitan Avenue B

* 121st Street A

* 111th Street A

* 104th Street B

* Woodhaven Boulevard A

* Forest Parkway A

* Elderts Lane A/B

* Cypress Hills B

* Crescent Street A

* Norwood Avenue B

* Cleveland Street A

* Alabama Avenue B

* Van Siclen Avenue B

* Eastern Parkway A/B

The (KK) made twelve stops; the (QJ) made ten stops; four of these were common stops.

 

When the (KK) became the (K) and terminated at Eastern Parkway, the (QJ), now the 70(J) began alternating to make the A, B and A/B stops.

 

The (K) made its' final run on Friday August 27, 1976. Reason cited: "Low ridership". On subway maps from 1968-1976, Nassau Street had a little color with (K) 70(M) and 70(J).

 

On a side note, (QJ) trains operated from 168th Street-Jamaica Terminal to Coney Island via Brighton Local.
