No (A) Trains Between 168th Street and 207th Street While the (C) dosen't run between 145th and 168th Street During this time

Also Downtown (C) trains are running express from 145th Street to Canal Street. For local service downtown used the (D) instead and during this time Downtown (D) trains runs on the (A) from 59th Street to W4th Street and runs in 2 section between 205th Street and 2nd Avenue and Between W4th Street to Coney Islabd

This is really bad, isn't it? By far the (N) has the worst rated service in the system, last year and this year by commuters. The (N) constantly gave way to other lines at junctions, and an average delay was over 9 minutes!!!! I'm sorry but even though the (N) has all those R160 cars, it doesn't improve overall service, it's current grade was a C-

 

The (D) did not use R40 slants, didn't see them. Their service hasn't improved much either.

 

Why does the (2)(5) have to run on each others' routes? Is there some weird mechanism causing the (2) to go to Lexington Avenue and (5) to 7th Avenue Broadway??!!!!

 

If the (N) can be better, it should not have to give in to other trains at junctions and maybe run express in Astoria as well-peak direction.

Track work at Wall Street is causing this G.O. so they don't want trains whatsoever going through there. Always wondered why that G.O. was happening until I was at Wall Street about a week ago and noticed the work already done to the tracks, but wasn't done.

How did the R42s operate on the (A)? Did they operate better on the (A) than they did on the (J) and (M) lines?

Yeah I had even more Fun when working the (C) even had so much fun doing three trips seeing everyone transfer from my train to the (D) at 145 St then the look on thier face when I pass them around 96 St. Also flying on the Express track hot is always a pleasure. Its just too bad they couldn't move trains faster in and out of 145 Street. I found myself holding at 125 St and 135 Street waiting for the pocket.

The R42's do seem to operate better on the (A) Line maybe its because we got more running room but even the braking seems better they getting taken care of better then they were on the (J)(M)(Z).
