You might as well call this the (F) O A M train to Lefferts...For the record, I will NOT be wasting an entire night's sleep at Lefferts Blvd to see this! It'll be really cool, but that's what youtube's for, IMO :lol: . I'll leave stuff like this to the more serious buffs.

 

(That is, if it even happens.)

Yeah. My real question is why the MTA would do this...What repairs would this allow for? Obviously, the repairs aren't on the Fulton Line or the Rockaway Line, as trains will be running there. If they were on the Culver Line, the (F) could just be turned at Euclid Av. It doesn't make sense.

It's Culver Viaduct work, with the usual (F) to Euclid GO. However, overnight the (F) will run to Lefferts Bl to replace the Shuttle, probably to reduce crew costs.

No (G) to CI?

 

There's no (F) between Jay Street and 18 Av, so I'll assume there's (F)'s running from CI to 18 Av.

An (F) to Lefferts...

 

They're probably doing this to get all those relaying (F) and (S) trains out of the way from (A) trains that are going straight through. This probably saves on having to pay for platform C/R's at Euclid too...

They've done the (F) to Euclid G.O. many times. If that's the reason the late-night (F) is going to Lefferts, then I'm wondering why they haven't had the (F) replace the Lefferts (S) before (have they ever?).

The (F) to Lefferts Blvd G.O only takes place during late night because of the regular (A) to Lefferts. Since (C) service is cut and there is no place for the (F) to turn without disrupting (A) service so send the (F) to Eculid Av to provide service to Flutin line local stations. If the (F) were sent to Lefferts during the day all (A) service would go to Far Rockway and run every 20 minutes which people along 8 th av would not be happy about infrequent (A) service. This allows (A) service to remain unchanged.

And probably to avoid delays at Euclid Ave, where the (S) & Euclid (F) terminate.

My educated guess is that they will be using the R160s for this. Any R46s would probably and most likely come out of Jamaica. Plus, I just looked on the R46 code sheet and I can't find a code to Lefferts Blvd for an
(F)
train. I did, though, find one code for a Euclid Avenue bound
(F)
train, via 63 Street, 6 Avenue Local, via Fulton Street.

I wonder if F to Leff is a choice on the computer.

 

 

I doubt it, then again you're a B Division Subway Conductor so there might be a possibility.

Why wouldn't there be a program? They have the (D) to the Rockaways and Lefferts along with the (M) to Euclid / Rockaways and lefferts , so why wouldn't they have an (F) program. I just don't know if they have one going to lefferts via Fulton local.

That's exactly what I'm trying to say, there is an (F) program to Euclid but I don't know if they have one for Lefferts Blvd. Yeah I know about the (D) to Far Rock but I'm not counting on it. I'm not always right, just human.

Good ole operations planning - they can come up with a million different programs that will never get used (2 from 148 to Flatbush via Lex? CMON!), yet they never have the programs loaded for actual GOs. There STILL isn't a 2 to South Ferry program, even with the new Barclays update!

Most R-46 F's during that G.O. ran with "to Euclid Av" with no letter, the same would apply if it runs to Lefferts. If R-160s run during the G.O., they'll most likely use the Euclid program if nothing to Lefferts exists or reprogram at Euc as an (S) shuttle to Lefferts depending on what supervision/line management decides.

This can be cancelled out by adding more (A) service let (F) do lefferts at night replacing local service while (G) extends to CI as for day let Select (F) trains go to lefferts off peak only every 20 mins with (G) to CI and rest of (F) trains still serving CI. This adds more purpose to the (G). Edited by qjtransitmaster

On regular weekends they often have the (F) go to Euclid. I honestly don't know why it's now going to Lefferts.

 

You hardcore railfans can now listen to the following voice:

"This is a Lefferts Blvd bound (F) train via the Lefferts Blvd (S). The next stop is 104th Street."
