Here were the changes during that period.

 

 

(A) picked up the slack and made all Local Stops from 207-145th Streets in Manhattan, replacing the (C) from 168th Street and down.

 

(C) Suspended

 

(E) replaced (C) Brooklyn Service

 

(D) replaced (C) Central Park West Service

 

(J) replaced (R) service in Brooklyn

 

(M) replaced (N) Service in Brooklyn

 

(N) suspended replaced by (M) in Brooklyn and (W) in Queens

 

(Q) replaced (R) Queens Service and local in Manhattan

 

(R) suspended, replaced by (J) in Brooklyn and (Q) in Queens

 

(W) replaced (N) Queens Service and local in Manhattan

 

(Z) suspended

 

(1) replaced the (3) between 14th Street Manhattan and New Lots Avenue

 

(2) made all stops.

 

(3) terminated at 14th Street in Manhattan.

Thank you very much, this really helps prove the (J) replacing the (R) and (M) on (N). This is clearer.:(

Man, that was a really crazy time. I should have my 9/17/2001 map around. I will never forget the constant changes that were done.

I will never forget september 2001. Seems like it was just a few weeks ago. I guess some things have that effect. The biggest and most bothersome service change for me was (obviously) the suspension of PATH service to WTC for what seemed like forever. The first time i rode it after service resumed... it was really, really eerie & sad.

It would be great to see some pics of trains on these rerouted routes, like say a (Q) at 71/Continental or a (J) at 95 St.

Yeah I know. It felt weird seeing red line trains to 33rd and green line trains to Journal Square and Newark, no yellow line except weekends. It felt a little weirder when Exchange Place opened up again and it was the last stop. Then it really felt weird when I first rode the red line back to the WTC the first day it reopened. I just didn't feel comfortable because I miss the old WTC station so much. My father use to take me there all the time and we just ride trains from when I got out of school and into the night.

Yea, my girlfriend was saying that too last september. She only really goes there on the 33rd street line unless shes meeting me because of the memories.

I second that. I was working full time in Brooklyn at that time so I was driving to work everyday. It wasn't until 2004 that I started working in Manhattan again after four years working in BK.

Damn that was a huge mess, and all it took was a few barbarians to create the mess that you see in that map.

(E) used R46, and R32.

(J) used R40M and R42

(M) used R40 (slants) R40M and R42

(Q) used R32, R40, R46 (for only one week) R68 and R68A

(W) used R32 R40 R68 and R68A

I wasn't affected much by the changes, since I was in high school then, and I only took the Bx4 and Q44 buses there and back.

 

I was really young too, well just a freshman in High School. I did have to take the (Q) a lot too, but didn't ride buses, most of this affected Queens, Manhattan and Brooklyn.

We must be the same age, then. I was in my freshman year, also. In fact, 9/11 took place on my second day in high school.

The (1) did not use the R62s because they were still on the (4). Instead, they used the single R62As that are now on the (7), which meant a rare RFW treat on the (1)!

Yeah, you're right about that, back then I didn't know the difference between the R62 and R62A. Some R62A were borrowed from the (6)<6> to the (1). More R142 and R142A's were placed into service at this time too.
