(V) train to Canarsie Ride

Recommended Posts

This isn't even possible... UNLESS YOU CONNECT 6TH AVE LOCAL TRACKS TO THE CANARSIE LINE!

It's possible. Go on the (M) route to Myrtle, stay on the local tracks to Bdwy Junction, then there are a pair of unused tracks that connect to the (L) to Canarsie.

Wouldn't that be an (M) and (J) combo... not really a (V).

Here is some history class children. Come and sit

 

The (V), at the expense of the (M), was to be rerouted to Metropolitan Avenue via Chrystie Street in 2010. Should a police investigation or some incident of some sort should happen, then the (V) would be rerouted to Rockaway Pkwy, for several reasons to be mentioned below. Ridgewood Residents and several MTA board members want the combined route to be called the (M) instead, since the designation was around for more than the (V). The final decision was for the (M) to operate the combined route. Then the (V) was eliminated. If such a routing were to happen, it'll be instead (M) announcements to Myrtle then Manual announcements to Rockaway Parkway (Broadway Junction IIRC can only turn one train on the middle track and the (M) has about 7 minutes relay, but then the (M) riders would still pack the (L), and the lower (L) stations would get a more direct midtown ride to Allieviate it)

Because setting them up as (V) 's would cause too much confusion, unless they replace the (V) bullet with a (M) bullet.

 

Also, there have been discussions in earlier years prior to 2009 IIRC to create a direct midtown ride from Canarsie. The only suitable option would be the (V) as long as it ceases operations to 2 Avenue.
