That's why they whole MTA system is messed up.

The system is screwed up, but not because trains run express overnight.

There’s less merging involved with the (D) running express in Manhattan overnight ( (A) and (F) )

In theory it could run express overnight in Brooklyn also since the (R) runs to lower Manhattan now, but the GO’s constantly knock out the (R) past 36th Street so they’re better off leaving it alone, and DeKalb needs 6th Avenue service overnight (which is a big pain to do if the (D) runs express on 4th Avenue.)

I'd prefer the (D) to be 4th Av express at all times since the (N) and (R) can handle 4th Av Local by itself. 

And to whomever said why the (D) is express at late night is because of the following;

1. Theres no point in running the (D) 6th Av Local to serve only two stops.

2. The (A) replaces the (C) during late nights so it makes no sense to have the (D) run along CPW Local. That, and its takes the longest time to go from 59th St to 205th St if it were to run local.

Interesting how you consider express service to be a Waste of Time.

Like you are a waste of Time and Energy.

Last night, at Grand St I noticed that the signs say that there was a (D) to 96 St behind the one to 205 St. Is this usual? (About 9:40PM)

It was probably a rerouted (Q) train. They sometimes show up like that.

The express tracks on 4th Avenue are reserved late nights for work trains departing 38th Street yard and returning before the AM rush (except when there's a G.O. on 4th Av of course)

Those rerouted (D) trains to 96th show up as " (Q) NORWOOD-205 ST"

I just was on an 32 (A) train that got taken OOS cause the T/O wasn't getting indication. Sucks as the train was crush loaded.. That and I had gotten an 32 (A) both ways traveling to my destination. Only for the train home to crap out at Canal St.

 

Still like the 32s though.

I got that same train at Jay St and was going to do a round trip to 207th and back.
