Beats me to know. I have a feeling the (F) is going to be sent over the 53rd and something is going to happen on the 63rd tunnel.

 

No, Its a Late Night G.O. that starts at 10pm, They are upgrading the 53rd st line and doing signal and lighting work, this is going to be ongoing for a while. even the weekends.

It isn't gonna be that many (M)'s there since around the 10 pm hour, that's when it becomes a shuttle. I'd say there might be like 2-4 (M) trains actually going there

It isn't going to become a shuttle at 10 anymore; under the new schedule; it's like after 11:30.

 

Really? Then that changes everything...happy hunting people

Still though, it doesn't really account for the (M) at 57th

I would say there is a mis-print someplace. They mean to say the M via 57/6 rather than the M to 57/6.

 

This operation would occur toward the end of the service day with less than a dozen (maybe about 8) M intervals affected. When M mainline service shuts down for the night, they need a certain amount of trains laid up on the CTL end and a certain amount laid up on the Met end to be set up for the next days AM service requirements. If they terminate at 57/6, and return to the Met end, there is a problem. Finally as noted, the M will not terminate at 57/6 as it will delay the F (and re-routed E from the same GO) from getting through.

I think they should written via 63rd then, that would make it even more comprehensible.
