Employees: The 1 Line is High Seniority?!?

Recommended Posts

It isn't now, but it sure will be.

 

With the opening of the South Ferry Terminal on December 21st, and the drop back for crews at the new SFT (double drop back on rush hours), they've added a whole bunch of $$$ onto the line for the crews. Mind you there are still a handful of jobs on the 1 which didn't get bucks (thus for the junior men.) There will also be two AM jobs and one penalty PM job signing on at SFT.

 

By the way, there will be no service, put-ins or otherwise, which will come out of the old South Ferry (SFRY) station.

So you're saying that the old South Ferry will be trashed? Wow! What about the (5) using it? I got totally different plans here about the old South Ferry.

it would be nice to have the (5) stop at SF outter loop and then the MTA can make a passage way to the (1) that way there is a connection between the IRT Lex line and seventh ave line

Well, looks like it's time to go say goodbye to the old SF station, but it'll be interesting to see the new one... well, regardless, there goes another station into the abandoned pile.

It's too small.

Exactly. Also it's disconnected from the museum, so it would be two separate admissions which involves splitting the management, and in addition to being too small only A Div equpiment can go there, and most is represented anyway at the museum. The curve would also be a safety risk because the museum gets a lot of children and they don't always "look before they leap"

Yea, I think South Ferry is way too small for a museum, even though it's in a convenient spot, as subwayguy here said the management would have to be split etc...

Not only that, but the TA is trying to cut costs so as to avoid a fare increase. To open a museum, at a site which would be open season to vandals, wouldn't be financially prudent.

I'd leave it preserved like city hall and have tours often. As for how to utilize it in its present configuration, if you left fare control in place but simply closed the area off with a gate you could use it just in case.

 

Also, if they put a connection between bowling green and the new south ferry station by going under the existing trackage there, or covering over the tracks and put platforms to the lex thru there. If you look at the actual locations of all this stuff, you can see transforming the current station into a passageway would indeed work. You could leave the fare control in place also, so people can go to either (4)(5)(6) or (1).

well as i said before they can make it a (5) Train station and have a connection to West Side line..

 

But the downside is, by having it for the (5) then no more brooklyn service...

 

 

UNLESS the MTA can reopen the abounded South Ferry Shuttle, and then have it run from Bowling Green to South Ferry's outer loop, for west-east side connection (1)(S)

I was trying to find out about this. (Called Operations Planning, but they just said they didn't know). Just like the (E) at WTC, the (W) at CHL or Whitehall (I have one of those tomorrow), or the (Q) at 57.

Wish there were more, because the trip to VC was murder last year.

By the way, there will be no service, put-ins or otherwise, which will come out of the old South Ferry (SFRY) station.

Hope they still use it when there is congestion at the new terminal, and like others are saying; they should consider using it for the (5), so they could get it out of the way of the (4).
