The longest line in the nyc subway is the far rockaway (A) line....

 

True, but I believe he was referring to the Longest 'IRT' route; hence, this thread was started in the IRT forum:rolleyes:

 

Yeah, I believe the (2) is the longest running route; Some 28+ miles from Wakefield to Flatbush.

If you're trying to get to a mets game quickly the (7) seems to drag on forever even though it's relatively short. Also the (D) from coney island seems long too, but not really in distance.

The (A) is most certainly the longest line in the system... trust me, I rode it all the way to Far Rock. and back pressing a camcorder against the front of an R38... my hand was messed up for weeks, but it was worth it.

Was a really a camcorder pressed up against the front of the R38, or is that what you call your little comrade?

The (A) has the longest track length, and the (2) has the longest trip length.

 

That's right. For time, it's the (2); for distance, it's the (A).

 

Even though the (A) is longer, it takes less time to complete its route because a large portion of it runs express in Manhattan, and there's a long distance between the stops out in Queens like Broad Channel and Howard Beach. The (2) easily gets held up when running local in the Bronx and Brooklyn.
