Return of the Diamond <5> Diamond?

Recommended Posts

I Ride the 4 Uptown in the AM From 42 to 161 And on the Clocks on the downtown Side I noticed

That they have the 5 Diamond Listed to Flatbush Avenue AND the The Regular 5 Circle Also to Flatbush or Crown Heights...So does This indicate The 5s That Come From Nereid-238 St?...They needa Return the Diamond 5 in my opinion...I Cudnt Snap a pic Cuz of the Chaos In Grand Central and the clocks move so fast

Two things:

One: Please, mind your usage of capital letters.

Two: It's likely a glitch. No such thing as <5> now, it's just (5).

Yes, the AM 5's which come out of 239 show up on the countdown clocks as <5>. And for some reason, 4's which run local from Woodlawn to Utica show up as <4>'s, hense my user icon.

Odd coincidence.

Not too long ago, I took a <5> up WPR in the morning, and it had a <5> bullet on it. I used to see it on the Rush Hours too, but I do not see it that often, only on the ones that go up WPR Express in the AM rush hour, but I have hardly seen a <5> to Flatbush. I remember when it was painted on the station sign, but I doubt you will see one today.

 

About the <4>, all about skipping 138 St. I have never seen one. I know that they were <4> when they were doing the Jerome Av pilot Express.

 

I had a sign request for the <4>, and when Lance is done, I was planning to make that my avatar, but I might just go back to my old one.

The <4> designation has nothing to do with skipping 138. Nor do the Burnside dropouts use it. If it shows up, it's due to a screwup. And sorry, that icon has already been claimed.

With the <4> and <5> I'm questioning if thes TABs have been in the system since before 2005s diamond restrictions...

My June 1993 map shows the <5> to Flatbush Avenue from 238 Street, and the <4> skipping 138 Street-GC.

 

 

Doesn't that map show the <5> from 241 Street?

Oh yeah. I was thinking about 238th Street and the like while typing that.
