umm is this based on that (1) train cut back that u made in the IRT forum?

 

but I would like to see the (T)(Q) head to the bronx, maybe replace (or keep) the bx55 and make it the 3rd ave subway to gun hill or even Co-op city hehe

 

and go to CI brooklyn or SI(BETTER) :D for the (T) lol

In the next 5-10 years I can see the subway being pretty much all NTTs, or at least trains with no RFW (maybe a few on the (7) because some R62s have RFWs) seeing as the R44, R46, R62, and R68 will still be around. The stations should be much cleaner and the MTA should have finally finished installing the train arrival time boards. The (T) will open and the (4)(5)(6) will become less crowded. Perhaps we'll see arrivals of the R179 in the next couple years, so that will be a plus, I suppose. Of course, not to leave out the most important thing... I should be a CR by then.

If the Second Avenue Line actually opens up (in any capacity, just the north-of-63rd street would be enough), i'd be pretty darn surprised.

the T will not be around in 5 years. itll be a miracle if we see it in 10 years. service has to be expanded south of 63rd st for the introduction of the T.

 

in 5 years.....

cbtc and automation (OPTP) fully funtional on the L only (finally).

(Q) service on second ave

improved passenger flow and capacity on the (1)(new south ferry station)

improved service and/or extentions on the following lines:

(G) church ave service

(Z)increased skip stop service

the beginning or reconstrution of SIRs North Shore line

and a younger fleet of rail cars.

I can see all of the R3x and older R4x trains being 100% retired.

 

I can see some lines being expanded. I can see proposals for new lines possibly connected to light rail systems.

 

I will miss south ferry, and times square being the terminal for the (7)<7>.

 

All of the elevated lines will have had new paint (i hope) and perhaps have heaters for use on cold days. The submerged lines should have a system to mitigate the heat from the stations, or even use it somehow to power the lights or something.

 

I can see trackage being replaced on 60% of the system, and signals being upgraded on the (7)<7>.

 

There will be a new line in the bronx connecting the terminals there.

 

There will be a new crosstown line in queens and brooklyn linking the terminals there.

 

I will finally be able to afford an unlimited monthly card.

 

 

Most of these are 10-15 years out, but whatever.:cool:
