Yes! the (F) to Euclid again!

Now I can get my announcements.

 

But wait... If the (G) is terminating at Hoyt-Schermerhorn will the R68's be taken off the (G) for that weekend, or will they be stored at Jamaica Yard?

Not really.. If they have the R68's run Friday night into Saturday morning then they could run that weekend

Even better, get announcements for "(F) 18 Av". I doubt you'll see this one again.

Do you even have a life then this? No!

 

Besides none of this g/os are special, its been here before.

 

Only thing that may happen is an R46 popping out on the (F).

(C) No trains between Manhattan and Brooklyn

Weekend, 6 AM to 11 PM, Sat and Sun, May 21 - 22

 

(C) trains run between 168 St and West 4 St, then run via the (F) line to 2 Av, the last stop.

 

As I would have that G.O.:

 

(C) trains run between 168th Street and West 4th, then via the (F) line to Broadway-Lafayette, the (M) line to Essex Street and then via the (J) line to Broadway Junction, where transfers to the (A) and (F) to Euclid Avenue are available.

 

This would give everyone a chance to see if it is feasible down the road to have the (M) eventually go up CPW to 168th or to Bedford Park Blvd., giving Broadway-Brooklyn riders in the latter case a potential one-seat ride to Yankee Stadium.

Next weekend, is the (F) running via Fulton Express or local? This is as close to an R160 (A) train I'm gonna get, I wanna live it up! :P

 

Also, it's nice the (C) is still running in Manhattan. The (MTA) has seemingly come such a long way since the days of herp derp (C) train being suspended and the (A) making all local stops between 168th and Euclid.

No the (F)ox is making local stops since there will no ©harlie service in Brooklyn that weekend.

That sounds like one huge mangled up mess right there. Where's the (C) supposed to lay up? What about the people you're leaving out in middle village that...you know...need the (M) between Myrtle Ave & Met? WHY?? would you want to send the (M) up CPW and into the Bronx? Do you like train congestion?

With no (7) service between Queensboro Plaza and Times Square, shouldn't the (Q) be extended to Astoria for the weekend? Those (N) trains are going to be packed.

Oh ok. But I remember at least two different instances of this G.O. where the (F) was made Fulton Express and the (A) was Fulton Local. That was bizarre.

What's with comments like this that have been cropping up recently? It's his choice to do what he wants to do, and if he's determined to get pictures, he will. Plus it's on the weekends, so its not like it's interfering with schoolwork or anything.

My thinking is this:

 

The (M) would run as it normally does on weekends (Shuttle).

 

The (C) would run to Broadway Junction via the (F), (M) and (J) routes after West 4th with the idea of having it run to Broadway Junction, allowing those on the (C) who are looking for Broadway Junction a one-seat ride there. The other part would simply be an experiment to see if in the future to see if a Broadway-Brooklyn line could run to 168.
