All downtown trains are already running via the (F) and all uptown trains are running via the (A) already b/t W4 and Jay, so this is probably to prevent congestion at W4. :confused:

I was caught in the middle of this. Spent about 30 min. waiting for an uptown (E) train at 34 St. with no announcement. Then at like 35 min.: "No uptown (E) at this time." So I'm like OK, I'll take the next (A) to 42 St. for the (7) to Roosevelt Ave., then take the (E) home. As soon as the (A) arrives, I see an (F) pull in on the local track. So I just scraped the (7) plan and transferred to the (F) at 42 St. Unfortunately, the c/r just made manual announcements until Jackson Heights. Then he puts via 8 Ave. It's interesting hearing (E) and (F) announcements on the same train because the voices are different. It sounds funny.
