Am I dreaming or does Lexington Avenue actually not have any G.O's today?

Most likely due to the festival. They were rerouting some (4) and (5) trains via the local tracks earlier (don't know if that's still in effect).

Can someone help me understand this?

If the (E) and (F) are running local along Queens Blvd, why is the (R) not ending at Queens Plaza?

D5 is the Middle track at QP where trains relay to go back the other way (the Christmas Special trains relayed there before 2nd Ave opened).

Right now they're working on CBTC on the express tracks, since D5 is in between the Express tracks it gets locked out of service as well, for a number of reasons related to the specific work they're doing.

D5 is out of service because work limits are written to the outage limits, not because there's actually any work going on on/around it. There would likely be a weekend or two where D5 access would actually be needed, but otherwise telling the good folks in Track Access to move the GO limits to the other side of switches 465 and 471 should do the trick.

It's not a matter of penciling the lines to the switch, the power distribution is such that D5 has to be deenergized to power off D3/4. 

Then there's still the matter of Short-lining the (R) will still require deadhead and light equipment runs from Jamaica, other negatives that come with terminating lines at places without crew facilities. It would be nice to have the (R) out of the way while they fumigate. A crossover west of 71st would be ideal to run around a problem train. But that'll never happend. Working with what's available, sending the (R) to 179th (or even Union Turnpike with a relay), is the only alternative...and that idea seems DOA

Ah, did not realize that the power block included D5. I had thought the break lay beyond...guess not!

Those operational issues are all issues, but — and not that any of this matters given the power issue — we are, in the end of the day, running a railroad for riders. Given the positive impact that a shortlined (R) would have had on (E)(F)(R) service, figuring out things like NIS moves isn’t all that big of an ask. And FWIW, (R)s would fumigate out of the way of all other traffic at Queens Plaza — not to say that they should necessarily be fumigating, but that’s a whole other discussion.
