Recommended Posts

Something strange happened to The (Q) announcements after Sandy.

In Brooklyn, it says "This is C.I. Bound (Q) EXPRESS train"

Why

Glitches happen with any of the NTTs. A couple of weeks back, I was on a (5) heading for Brooklyn and the announcement went "This is a Manhattan-bound (5) express train" until Borough Hall where the announcements resumed to normal.

the signs are activated manually. the crew has to select the route in the computer system. and since a person is involved, mistakes can and will be made.

When trains run the Q from astoria - Broadway local - Brighton local - to coney island program , the announcements are set up to say "CI bound Q express train" in brooklyn. I guess the person who was programming that particular route program put in the wrong CI bound Q announcement.

+100000. If you even wanna fret about it go to the random thoughts thread for something minor like this.

 

If only we still had the dancing lock...

That's definitely not new.

 

But the past comments already answered your question.

 

To add on, when we had that (B)(Q) going express to Brighton and Coney while the (B)(Q) heading north went local, the (Q) I was on had the Brighton Express setup.

On a similar note, when the (N) goes via the West End line and local in Manhattan, it announces it as an express in Manhattan.

During some morning trains to Manhattan, 57 Street-bound (N) trains running express along Broadway will have next station announcements beginning with: this is a Manhattan-bound (N) local train. It makes these announcements as far as Atlantic Avenue–Barclay Center even though it runs express from 59 Street. This is true for every 57 Street-bound (N) via Broadway express and is probably set in stone until they can fix the program.
