About the (D) train problem is there a way to temporarily suspend the G.O so that there shouldn't be a complete suspension of West End Service?

How does a Broadway BMT train connect to the 6th Ave line? I am not aware of any connections from 57th St/7th Ave station and the 57th St/6th Ave station. Am I wrong?

After leaving Lexington Avenue/63rd Street, a detoured (R) train can cross over to the 57th Street/Seventh Avenue station lead, and comes into that station on the express tracks.

Sometimes (R) trains would cross the Manhattan Bridge via the Sixth Avenue side, and they can use the Sixth Avenue Line just like that.

That's if they want the (R) to run down Sixth Avenue, not how it could get from Lexington Av-63 St to 57 St-7 Av, which LRG already answered.

I was railfanning today and I caught a Coney Island bound (D) train via the (F) line at the Jay Street-Metrotech station (A)(C)(F)(R). I took it all the way to Stillwell Avenue and due to construction on the West End Line, (D) trains were rerouted over the (N) line between Stillwell Avenue and 36 Street. The Coney Island bound (D) trains in Brooklyn were rerouted over the (N) line since there was a track condition at 9 Avenue.

Thx for that info. I did not know this - So a train leaving Lex and 63rd can next stop either 6th Ave and 57th or 7th Ave and 57th St station. I guess this will allow the Q to run up Broadway/7th Ave and then eventually continue up 2nd Ave from 63rd St when/if the SAS ever happens.
