Nothing that has not been done before. When they start having trains stop at Myrtle Ave on the (:( and (Q), I'll be interested.

 

I'd be very interested in how the riders reach the street after leaving the trains at Myrtle Ave.

(S) No Trains Running - Take The (A) Instead

Weekend 11 PM Fri. To 4:45 AM Mon. Apr. 2-5

 

(A) trains rerouted from Broad Channel to Rockaway Park during this time.

 

Sounds like this will be a fun Easter weekend for the (A) under this: Days/Evenings to Lefferts Boulevard, Far Rockaway and Rockaway Park and Late Nights to Far Rockaway and Rockaway Park.

They're only a PITA cuz people are too dimwitted to take into account that weekend service changes are going to be a hassle regardless.

 

If they actually planned ahead they'd be much easier to get around but other than that too bad for them....

Guess what is the truth behind the (C) to 2 Av GO???

 

(C) No trains between Manhattan and Brooklyn

(C) trains are rerouted on the (F) between West 4 St and 2 Av

Weekend, 6:30 AM to midnight, Sat and Sun, Apr 17 - 18

(F) trains run to Euclid Av — (G) trains run to Stillwell Av

Weekend, 12:01 AM Sat to 5 AM Mon, Apr 17 - 19

 

(F) Customers:

Days, trains run express between Hoyt-Schermerhorn Sts and Euclid Av.

Nights, trains run local between Hoyt-Schermerhorn Sts and Euclid Av.

 

(G) Customers:

 

(G) service is extended between Church and Stillwell Avs, to replace the (F) in Brooklyn.

 

To Stillwell Av:

 

Transfer at Hoyt-Schermerhorn Sts to a Brooklyn-bound (G) making all (F) stops.

To Manhattan:

 

Transfer at Hoyt-Schermerhorn Sts to a 179 St-bound (F) or a 207 St-bound (A).

 

Note: At Hoyt-Schermerhorn Sts, look for directional signs posted on platform columns.

 

(A) Trains run local in both directions between Hoyt-Schermerhorn Sts and Euclid Av

Weekend, 12:01 AM Sat to 5 AM Mon, Apr 17 - 19

 

(A) 207 St-bound trains run on the from Jay to West 4 Sts then local to 59 St

Weekend, 12:01 AM Sat to 5 AM Mon, Apr 17 - 19

Free shuttle buses provide alternate service between Far Rockaway and Beach 90 St

Weekend, 10:30 PM Fri to 4:45 AM Mon, Apr 16 - 19

 

To make this even better:

 

-As of now, there is no other (G) GO on the site, meaning the (G) might go from Forest Hills to CI! Remember, during past iterations of this GO, the (G) ran with full-length sets.

 

-There is no (E) GO affecting WTC.

 

Also note the MTA is now using "via the (F) to 2 Av" rather than "via the (V) to 2 Av"

The New Year's GO in effect on the weekend of Apr 24 is slowly starting to take shape.

 

(2) *Atlantic Av-bound shuttle trains run express from Franklin to Atlantic Avs

Weekend, 12:01 AM Sat to 5 AM Mon, Apr 24 - 26

 

For Eastern Pkwy, Grand Army Plaza, and Bergen St, take the (4) instead.

* No trains between Atlantic Av and Chambers St during this time.

 

(4) Train service is extended to New Lots Av

Weekend, 12:01 AM Sat to 5 AM Mon, Apr 24 - 26

 

New Lots Av-bound trains run local from Atlantic to New Lots Avs.

The actual big post will come up much later, but we know it'll happen!

For the (G) GO, It Starts at Corut Sq and Ends at Coney Island Replacing the (F)

 

The (G) will use Full-legnth R46's with (Maybe) the R32's. Rarely they use R32's for the (G) GO, It happened 3 times, in 2004,2007 and 2009.

So I will be on the (G).

 

The (F) will be nothing but R46's and R160's, But the last time I did this GO they used R46's and an R44 set from Pitkin yard.

You wanna hear something else interesting?...

 

During the daytime hours of the G.O., the (F) will be express in Brooklyn...which is definitely something different and unusual. Usually the (F) operates local in Brooklyn and the (A) is express.

 

Guess Fulton Street Local riders don't want to transfer....

No usually during this GO the (F) is local via Fulton because it is terminating at Euclid and the (A) is the express via Fulton except late nights.

 

Not this time....

 

G.O. notices say otherwise pal look em up the next time you ride the (F)....
