Note: I am not a foamer and I am not trying to sound like a foamer but...

 

Wouldn't it make sense to run some R160s on the (D), since R160s supposedly handle large crowds very effectively? Believe me, I've been on the D right after Yankee games the the 68s are bunched up to the point where you wouldn't be able to get out of your seat

Not sure what that has to do with the Low V's running on the (4) line...

They do have Baseball Special (D) runs. Ask a T/O on the forums. Those runs only run to 2nd Avenue though.

They meant to the game, the specials go from the game.

Ah, I guess they think people get there at different times while when the game is over everyone leaves at the same time.

No, since R160s are not assigned to CCyd (which is where post game baseball specials originate).

 

Reassigning them would not make sense because they are needed elsewhere, and baseball specials are a seasonal, special service.

 

Besides, when baseball specials are loaded in stations, plenty of time is left for people to enter and exit. The primary advantage of the R160s in terms of crowding is a better door to train length ratio which allows for FASTER boarding/detraining at busy stations on short headways (aka Queens Blvd expresses). The D never deals with tight enough headways for that to be completely necessary.

I just realized that the Nostalgia Train is on October 23, the same day as Game #4 of the World Series.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts about what's going to happen that day? Is there still going to be a "Nostalgia Special" for the Yankees game too?

Uh, the Yankees have to win the ALDS & ALCS first to get to the WS... also if the AL won the All star game this year (I forgot) game 4 would be in a NL stadium so this won't be a issue anyway.

The NL did win the ASG so game #4 would be in Yankee Stadium(if the team gets there)or ballpark of the AL champion.

The NL won the ASG this year. If the Yankees went to the WS, it would be Game 3, 4, & 5.

We now know they will at least be one on Thursday (10/6). Whether there is one on Saturday (10/8 ) depends obviously on what happens in Game 5.
