Y U NO SAY THAT?

 

Dude. English, please.

You say: Y U NO SAY THAT?

Proper saying: Why did you not say that?

Don't ask, I am just the type of guy who pays 110% during grammar lessons.

C'mon, I was just joking. Back on topic before we start grammar school on this thread.

 

The entire Brighton Corridor from Prospect Park to DeKalb avenue is unusable. However, trains may stop at DeKalb or Prospect, but cannot travel within the corridor. How would you reroute the (B)(Q)?

Use shuttle buses as a last resort.

Oh I did chief.

 

Son of a gun, we got smoke at the Fulton Street Station all over the (A)(C) platform. As a precaution, trains can not stop within one stop of here, with a few obvious exceptions, of course.

Yeah, I got a problem. You said they can't stop. That means that they can still pass through.

via the (D) Grand St to Coney Island (4 Av/West End Express)

Please explain to me why they would not be able to stop within one stop of Fulton, but pass Fulton.

1) There is DAMN SMOKE in the tunnel.

2) If they could pass Fulton, then why the need to reroute?

What's wrong with Rutgers St and the WTC? Why aren't those options in the reroutes?

 

Re NX's service change (Cranberry closure only):

(A) 207 St to Lefferts Blvd/Far Rockaway via Rutgers Street tube (some trains local in Brooklyn)

(C) 168 St to Euclid Av via Rutgers St (some downtown trains terminate at WTC due to spacial constraints)

WTC already has the (E) to deal with, and Rutgers has the (F). I'm trying to minimize problems on lines that aren't directly affected by the change. The only thing I did is the (F)/(G) reroute.
