36 st/Northern bld Express station


Milan

Recommended Posts

As the (V)/(M)/(W)/(G) changes are going to take place

let me revisit decisions after the 63rd st tunnel connection to QB line.

1)(F) diverted to 63rd st tunnel

2)(V) created as QB&6 ave local

3)(G)cut back to court square most of the times.

A problem created is the absence of transfer station at the

merge(diverge) of the new connection[at 36th street/northern blvd].

MTA should,after the economy rebounds

make this station[36th street northern blvd] a 6 track station similar to Dekalb ave station(BMT).

Two new tracks straddling the present platforms one in each direction.

Have the (F) train use the present local tracks and stop at 36th st station

before entering/after leaving 63rd st tunnel line.

This way riders can transfer to/from (F) to (R)&(V)/(M).

(E) will be unaffected and will use the centermost express tracks.

Comments welcome.

so this station would basically exist for transfer purposes...

 

you do realize that the current 36th st station isn't exactly drawing in passengers... have you ever been around 36th/northern? that's the quietest/subtlest part of northern (outside of hearing trains rumble by, in the distance)....no residences over there, only thing commerical over there is the slew of car dealerships... no room for growth whatsoever....

 

6 tracks for this? As if the MTA doesn't piss away enough money on virtually meaningless projects....

 

some of you have some wild ideas, man....

I don't think this will work too well. Yes, it's a bit of a inconvience for riders between 65th Street and 36th Street to not have the (F) at Queens Plaza but the (V) does the same as the (F) did, albeit as a local.

 

If you're at 36th Street and really want the (F), you could take an (R) or (V) to Queens Plaza, transfer to a Roosevelt Avenue (E) and transfer to a Manhattan (F).
