Subway - What If?

Recommended Posts

Lets see how you guys do with this one.

Pre-holiday, right in the heart of rush hour:

A train is disabled in Dekalb crossing from A3 to F1 Southbound, that's the (Q) trains regular platform to 4th Ave Local line for those of you who don't have the track numbers.

(B) service is suspended. Excess (B) trains turn at 2nd Ave or Prospect Park.

(Q) service runs from 96th Street to Prospect Park via Broadway Express, 4th Ave Express, the Sea Beach Line, and the Brighton Line. (Not all trains would come back from Prospect Park to 96th Street)

(W) service runs from Canal Street to Astoria / Ditmars Blvd.

(D)(N) trains run local south of Atlantic Ave / Barclays Center.

(R) trains run in two sections: Forest Hills to Whitehall Street, and 36th Street to Bay Ridge / 95th Street.

The (Q) does NOT go to the local track, it goes to what is the "express" track (at DeKalb the outermost track) as the inner "local" tracks are only accessible from the tunnel.  With that in mind:

(B) is truncated to West 4th Street with select trains southbound ending at and starting back northbound from 34th Street.

(D) and (R) are unaffected by this.

(N) and (Q) temporarily swap line routes in Brooklyn with the (N) operating via Brighton and the (Q) via Sea Beach.  (N) also operates via the tunnel while the (Q) skips DeKalb. 

If capacity permits, the (J) and (Z) are extended to Brighton Beach (running express Prospect Park-Brighton Beach) to replace (B) service in Brooklyn, operating via Montague.

I doubt (MTA) would do that

how would NYC Subways look like now, if 9/11 never happened?

Probably close to what we have now except we would likely NOT have the lower level of South Ferry and the re-built Fulton Transit Center.

Anyway, getting this back to what it's supposed to be:

A sinkhole develops next to Trinity Place, causing damage to the Rector Street station on the (R)(W) and requiring it to be taken out of service for three months with no trains able to pass through it.
