Okay, why didn't IND actually do it? Where was it supposed to be?

It was part of the 1929 Second System plan; the Concourse line was supposed to run over Gun Hill Rd/Burke Av out to Boston Rd/Baychester Av. That's why the (D) curves east past Bedford Park Blvd

The tunnel continues to Webster Avenue. The extension was also proposed in the 1960s.

How come they don't do it now then? Seems like a one stop extension would benefit a lot of people.

In (MTA) world, tunneling costs would go super high due to the need for additional unnecessary workers. Honestly, they really need to implement some serious cost reforms before they can put some shovels in the ground for any big project.

I thought the tunnel was already built?

I'm pretty sure the track profile beyond 205 all but forces you to bridge the Bronx river; IINM they were planning a dual-level road/rail bridge there. A shame they haven't extended, I agree. That'd be useful.

The Jamaica 160s are getting ads on the side of the car similar to what buses have...

Not gonna lie...this looks better than what the Cuomo vinyl-wrap scheme is doing right now (especially with the blue on the top half on the side of the car)

Corona’s cars had gotten them first. Then Jamaica followed suit (adding them to dirty cars of course) Corona’s deep cleaned cars had them put on; As the way it should be IMO.
