Nice pictures and also was the Queen Bouvlard section of the (M) running full length trains?

Great job!

8 car trains? That's not enough for cars imo. Then again at least Queens is well off compared to Brooklyn and Lower manhattan.

You cant turn the (E) at 34 street

 

What's the difference? The last stop is 34th-HS at least it might've made more sense if it was the (E) since every time there's a GO, the (E) gets sent down 6th av and they hardly ever run the (M). Obviously in the grand scheme of things the letter doesn't really matter since the (M) in this case is 'extended' past 71st-Continental. Edited by Grand Concourse

How is (1)(2)(A)(D)(F)(M)(N) turning around at 34 St while (4)(6) at Grand Central, (4) at Borough Hall, (5)(D) at Barclay Center, (7) at Flushing, (J) at Hewes St, (A)(F)(R) at Jay St?

 

How is (F) turning around at Avenue X and (D) at Bay Parkway?

Cuz they've done all of this before, except the (J) to Hewes seems very new.

The 1, 2, A, D, F, M and N are turning at 34th Street because the switches from downtown to uptown are between 42nd Street and 34th Street. The Lex's switches are north of Grand Central, so the 4 and 6 have to turn there. Remember there's no power south of 34th Street in Manhattan.

 

The Brooklyn 4 is probably using the crossover just north of Borough Hall.

 

The 5 and Brooklyn D are relaying on the express tracks of their respective lines.

 

The 7 is probably turning normally at Main St since there's nothing wrong on the east end of the line.

 

The J is turning at Hewes St because, for some reason I can't fathom, Transit doesn't want to single-track into Marcy Av.

 

The A, F and R all have crossovers outside of Jay St on each line so they can turn around.

 

The Brooklyn F is probably using the yard lead-ins to relay since there's nothing written about trains skipping Avenue U in one direction. However, if they are bypassing the station, then they're single-tracking into Avenue X. The Brooklyn D is doing what the old M used to do: relay just south of Bay Pkwy from the Coney Island-bound track to the middle track, then to the northbound one.

Just to clarify above, the (N) terminates only on southbound express track, no other tracks were being used as of yesterday.

The 6th Ave. 34th St. is a mess, they terminate locals on southbound express and local tracks, (D) terminates on northbound tracks, so departing (F) and (M) have to switch 2 or 3 times. South terminals for (D) and (F) are exactly as Lance said.

 

Thanks everyone for the comments.

This is a weird sight but cool in spite of what's happening around us.

 

I think someone asked why the (E) isn't running. I think it's because the tubes are still flooded in the area. The (M) is the next best thing and thank goodness for that.

This is how they are relaying:

Yeah 6 Avenue 34 Street is a mess, trains were backed up all the way to Queensbridge! They used all 4 tracks to turn trains around at 34 which created delays in southbound trains.

 

And I also think they should have used the (E) instead of the (M). 1. There is no (M) program for this service pattern, 2. The (M) uses 8 car trains instead of 10 car trains, 3. People are not used to an (M) going to Parsons.

Good information. I was wondering what exactly was stalling my train in the middle of the 63rd St line for what seemed like over 10 minutes. What can we say though? Nobody from here to Albany ever expected a storm to cause wreck over the entire city like this one that just hit us.
