No A or C through the Cranberry???


Amtrak7

Recommended Posts

On the MTA's June look-ahead for the Fulton St Transit Center, it says this:

 

June 26-27

 

No (A) or (C) service at Broadway-Nassau St.

 

What does this mean? It has to be more than a simple bypass, as when trains just don't stop at the station, it says:

(A)(C) trains bypass Broadway-Nassau St in both directions.

 

Just like "No (4) or (5) at Fulton St" means a (4)-(J) GO and "No (2) or (3) trains at Fulton St" means the (2) to South Ferry, this might be indicative of a MAJOR GO.

No, trains will still run through the tube, they just won't stop at Broadway - Nassau Street!

 

This isn't the first time this has been done, FYI. they've been doing this since the beginning of April.

I know, but they never worded it this way.

The (A)(C) are running through Cranberry. If not, High Street would have no service;)

 

It works just like a battery run. Approach station, slow down, blow horn, proceed through station, resume speed.

This has been going on since March. If both tracks on the Cranberry are open, it usually means that trains will skip B'way-Nassau. When only one track is open, trains will stop at B'way-Nassau.

 

They are doing superstructure work at B'way-Nassau, which means they are putting new columns and other stuff in the former ramp space. The former ramp space is being converted into a full length mezzanine a level above the train line. This will act as a transfer passageway. The work is "potentially dangerous", so instead of risking lawsuits, crews are working during the weekends when there is limited access to the station. They are also digging holes on the platforms to build new elevators that would link to the mezzanine.

 

Speaking on this subject, they ought to replace the tiles in that station.
