Edited to add an alternate version of the above:

Question:

How exactly do you plan to send the (L) to 6th Ave?

Also, the (A) can't run on the 6th Ave Express, without either (B) or (D) service getting cut, and the express stops are different on 6th Ave, so what's the point anyways?

Also, I think your'e maxing out TPH @West 4th

Trains switch to the desired track entering Union Square, then go to 6 Av.

I think he meant 6 Av Local.

With the service the (L) has? I think not.

 

I think he meant 6 Av Local.

 

 

Even then, something would need to be done with the (F), seeing how the (A) is 18TPH.

What Brighton Express said.

Sorry, ment to say via 6th Avenue Local (as Brighton Express mentioned)

Also, I think your'e maxing out TPH @West 4th St

I'll change it to "select (A) trains terminate at 34 Street-Penn Station"
