Need Info On Cortlandt St (1)-(9)

Recommended Posts

From Wikipedia (Source: The NY Times).

 

After September 11, 2001, (1) trains had to be rerouted since the IRT Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line ran directly under the World Trade Center site and was heavily damaged in the collapse of the Twin Towers. It ran only between 242nd Street and 14th Street, running local north of and express south of 96th Street; the (9) train and skip-stop service were suspended at this time. On September 19, after a few switching delays at 96th Street, service was changed. (1) trains made all local stops from 242nd Street to New Lots Avenue via the Clark Street Tunnel and IRT Eastern Parkway Line, to replace (3) trains (which terminated at 14th Street) at all times except late nights, when it terminated at Chambers Street in Manhattan instead. On September 15, 2002, (1) trains returned to South Ferry and the (9) train and skip-stop service was restored.

After the September 11, 2001 attacks, (N) service was suspended and replaced by the (W) in Manhattan and Queens and the (Mx) in Brooklyn. On October 28, service was restored, but Cortlandt Street remained closed until September 15, 2002.

 

On September 11, 2001, after the attack on the World Trade Center, the BMT Broadway Line was damaged, and the (R) service was cut back to run only south of Court Street. On September 17, (R) service was totally suspended, replaced with (J) service in Brooklyn and (Q) service in Manhattan and Queens. All three lines returned to normal service by October 28.

 

After September 11, 2001, (N) service was suspended. (W) trains ran at all times between Ditmars Boulevard and Coney Island. It made all local stops except in Brooklyn north of 36th Street. During late nights, it ran in two sections, between Ditmars Boulevard and 34th Street (skipping 49th Street northbound), and in Brooklyn between 36th Street and Coney Island. Normal service resumed on October 28.

Service on the (E) was affected by the September 11, 2001 attacks because its terminal station is at the northeastern corner of the World Trade Center site. It went to Euclid Avenue in Brooklyn as the local on the IND Fulton Street Line at all times except late nights, replacing the temporarily suspended (C) service—the third time it had served the borough. This had happened in 1976, and again in early 2000 during the replacement of track switches at the World Trade Center station. On September 24, 2001, (C) service was restored, and (E) service was cut to Canal Street (since World Trade Center would be closed until January).

 

In the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks, (C) service was suspended until September 24, 2001. Local service along Central Park West was replaced by the (A) and (D), and the (E) was extended from Canal Street to Euclid Avenue.

I remember the (E) being sent to Euclid. It was about 75% R46. I was in heaven (though 9/11 was obviously a tragedy).

 

Why?

He hates the R32's.

 

Well by the end of this decade, they'll be gone, as will the era of the RFW, as I do believe if and when those 62A's leave the (7) for good, they will modify the single cars and link them into five car units for whatever line they end up on.

That when the E-train terminated at Canal Street - it did not actually relay there. What happened was that the E-train went to the very same World Trade Center station as always, using its switches and tracks as usual. The World Trade Center station entrances and exits were closed due to 9-11, but the station, tracks and platforms were not damaged or affected by 9-11.

 

Just an interesting note.

At that time one would just see a seemingly abandoned platform (still lit up) as one rode south or north on the (A).

I was fresh out on the road at the time (extra extra) and used to get the platform job for that. It was murder trying to get off all the homeless who had taken refuge on the line; not usually having to get off there.
