How would you change subway service and expand the system?

 

I would start with the (A)(C)(E) lines. I would extend the ©to lefferts Blvd. Then get rid of the (S) and extend the (E) to Rockaway Park.

 

Extend the (:D to Coney Island.

Reconfigure the Sea Beach Line to a four track configuration(Again) and make New Utrect ave. and Kings Highway Express/Local Stations. Extend the (W) Via Whitehall Street to Coney Island.

 

Build the (T) and extend it to the Bronx all the way to Co-Op City and extend the (Q) to City Island.

 

Build a second deck on the Jamaica line. Create a new (K) line to Canarsie. How will i do this? The line will run from Washington Heights via B'Way-Lafayette Street To essex Street. Across the bridge where it will switch and rise to the second deck. Then, It will use the tracks that connect the (J) to the (L).

 

The new (H) from Norwood-205 Street to Metropolitan. It will run the same tracks as the (K) from 145 to Flushing Avs. Then, it will turn off on Lewis Ave and run until Myrtle Ave. and stop on the upper level and the continue on to Metropolitan Ave.

 

a new (P) line from Norwood-205 to Jamaica center.Using the same tunnels as the (H) and(K) to Broadway Jct. Then continues on to Jamaica Center.

 

Also, i will get rid of the (Z).

 

Extend the (M) to Coney Island.

Extend the (G) to Coney Island.

Extend the (R) to Port Richmond, Staten Island.

Extend the (N) to LGA and the (W) to College Point.

Extend the (7)<7> to Rosedale Queens.

 

Reopen the 91st,18th,and Worth Street Stations. Also, reopen the City Hall Loop Station. Just have people exit out of the first five cars like 145th Street on the (3). Reopen the South Ferry Inner Loop Station to the (5) Train.

 

Create a transfer from the Junius Street Station on the (3) to the Livinia Avenue Station on the (L).

 

Create a transfer from Hewes street(J)(M) to Broadway(G).

 

Extend the (L) to Throgs Neck via Story Avenue.

 

Extend the (7) to Sheepshead Bay via 3rd Avenue, 39th Street/Ft. Hamilton Pkwy, and Ocean Pkwy to Knapp Street.

These are just some of my plans, what about yours?

forget the (Q) being extended to city island, way to long, the (T) will do, but on the downside I dont think any train can fit in a small island with a small population

 

But the (T)(Q) can run on the 3rd ave line, and termanate at ether White Plains rd-Gun hill or, Bay Plaza Mall

 

The (A) could extend passed 207, to to Van Cortland

 

The (R) can merger off after Bay ridge to the SIRT to Tottonville

 

(M) and (G) to CI?? thats way to much trains in a small term

 

But remember the capital that mta needs before this MAY achieve

There would be a pink train.:D

I would totally extend the (6)<6> to at least Bowling Green.

 

Also, I'd try to devise a way to connect the Pelham Line to a West Side line sooner than 59th Street.

 

And in my magical fantasy land, a Bronx/Queens crosstown.

Hell no to the (E) to Rockaway Park. The solution is every other (A) train to Rockaway Park while the other train goes to Far Rockaway. The (C) to Lefferts would take palce of course.

(MTA) Capital Construction

Second Ave. Subway Phase I

Build the two tracks deep into the ground like what is happening right now. Phases II-IV will be four-tracked. Later on when money is available an extra two tracks for the express tracks could be built above the Phase I tracks and connect with the express tracks on either end to facilitate SAS Express service. Just like the Lex line.

 

(7) Extension

Build the 10th Avenue Station.

 

Get a private company to build FSTC to minimize cost to the (MTA)

 

IRT

FIGURE OUT ATS! This will finally make the IRT mroe efficient and end the signal problems plaguing the IRT.

(1), (6) and (7) lines get CBTC as the lines do not share track with any other line

Convert the (7) to a BMT line (requiring much money and reconstruction west of QBP, including the Steinway Tunnels)

BMT

Lengthen the platforms of the BMT Eastern Division elevated structures to hold 10-car trains. When money is available do the same to the underground stations.

FULLY RENOVATE CHAMBERS STREET. Clean off the abandoned platform to showcase the old tiles/mosaic/whatever.

Fix any CBTC problems on the (L)

IND

Extend the (V) to 179th Street and Church Ave., being the local. Add service.

(F) becomes queens and Brooklyn Express.

(G) is extended to Forest Hills and church avenue

(E) gets R179s

Queens Blvd. gets CBTC

 

New Lines/Extensions -

Full SAS in Manhattan - connect to Nassau St. and 6th Ave. as wellas 63rd St.

(Q) branches off SAS to become the 125th Street Crosstown

(T) replaces 3rd Ave. El

(U) runs from Bell Blvd. along Northern Blvd., connecting to 63rd St. and running down 2nd Ave. as an express.

the (Q) too long? the (A) from Inwood to Far Rockaway Local is too long. Besides, residents from Co-op City and City Island may need Direct service to the city if some residents there can't drive. City Island Service will just end after 11pm. That will terminate at Pelham Park instead.

 

Coney Island can handle the (M) and (G) services coming to it. Stillwell had about 8 services coming into it.(M)(:D(D)(F)(N)(NX)(QT)(QB)(TT) all ran to it in the 1970s, its perfectly capable of operating at twice the compacity it is running at now.

It was different back then because of frequency back then. Now and days, you can't have that many lines to Coney Island during the rush or forget, the entire southern division would become a mess at those hours.

It already is. We could use some extra trains. The (M) needs to come to CI. The (D) takes forever. The (G) can fit down here. The (F) is also spaced out alot. The (N) needs some extra service, that is why the (W) needs to come down here. The (Q) gets too crowded and the (:D could provide extra service to Coney Is.

Ok, so if you agree that its a mess already, why make it even more of what it is already?

 

The (G) isn't needed to go all the way to Coney Island, the (F) runs way too frequent to have the (G) going down there. The (M) isn't needed to go all the way to Coney Island. The (:D does not need to go to Coney Island because when do you see (Q) trains go past Brighton Beach packed to the max? The (W) isn't really needed all the way to Coney Island, but sure as hell needs to go to Brooklyn because Whitehall is a major problem and congestion hole because of its narrow platforms. The middle track needs to be closed off, and fill in a platform so there is more room. The (W) should run 4th Avenue Local to 9 Avenue on the West End....

 

You have to learn and study where people are going to and where they get on trains. Trains are not getting to Coney Island packed today, and I mean completely packed. Only time you'll see a train packed to Coney Island is when a line is backed up.

Wow, nothing on the idea of a second deck on the Jamaica Line Between the Marcy and B'Way Junction and providing direct service from Northern Bronx to Middle Village, Canarsie, And Jamaica.

You seem to have forgotten the many students on the same train that makes me feel like i am in a sardine can. extend the (M) to Coney Island so the (D) Can Run Express Peak Direction and I dont have to wait 15 minutes for the (D) in the middle of winter because the (M) terminates at Bay Pkwy. Students got to get to and from school quicker. Trust me, I KNOW. The (F) Running Frequent? Please, i could walk to my destination before that thing comes. 5 Manhattan bound trains can come before the Southbound comes. Extend the G to Coney Island with some trains terminating at Avenue X. Have you seen the entire Stillwell Terminal Empty?, I have, And Im not talking about Late Nites. The (N) is the slowest out of the entire Southern Division. Sea Beach could use a new Express/Local along the line. With stops at New Uctrect and Kings Hwy, especially at Rush Hour. The (Q) Also. People HATE Running to the other side of Brighton Beach Station just to miss their train. Extend the (:D To Coney. That (Q) can get very Crowded.

 

The (MTA) is wasting money on empty space, its about time they used it.

If I were in charge, I would run the (MTA) with an iron fist, outlaw all transit photography under penalty of immediate imprisonment and officially change my title to El Presidente. I would also hire an Internet Czar to read railfan boards, jot down all of the "if I were in charge" ideas, then implement the exact opposite.

*sigh....

 

Look, the (D) DOES NOT need to run express via West End, its been mentioned before and shot down horribly because the service wouldn't make sense and be feasible.

 

If the (M) was extended to Coney Island, then you have a great chance of constant congestion, and even much worse when the line is backed up.

 

Now, about the Culver line, what help would the (G) bring going all the way down to Coney Island or Avenue X when the (F) is handling it now? Those problems you encounter is the line being backed up by lord knows, and yes, they backup almost every single day.

 

The way you think the service should be, you would be over-providing service, wasting money in the end and running unnecessary trains.

 

And about express/local on the (N), it is not needed either. If you're directing to the Sea Beach, then the express service is flat out not feasible and a waste. The ridership on the Sea Beach is very much spread out so skipping stops would be screwing over people of stops you skip when theres space and time to let them on and make their stop.

 

The (:D to the (Q) connection sucks sometimes, but space is something you don't have at Coney Island, especially during the rush, to turn both (:D and (Q) trains. Even the slightest backup would have quite a few trains line up. With a system like that, it'll fail. Its always good to have abit of time between trains so you can turn them in a more smoother pace so everything runs fine. And problems constantly occurs backing the (Q) line up now and sending trains somewhere they don't need to go unless of dire necessity, is not the resolution.

My plans are coming to life on Trainz but I'll share them.

 

I would rebuilt all R32 into R162s and R38s into R165s. I would get rid of those R44s and replace them with my own R200s and R214s (Both my own design.) I would rehab all R62s and R62As and design new IRT cars (R210s)

 

This is my (MTA) plan.

(A): Replace those R44s with R160s and R162s lol.

(:): Extend it to Ocean Parkway during rush hour.

(C): Extend all trains to 10 Cars and have them run to Rockaway Park.

(D): Get rid of the R68s and have R165s and R214s on them. Take it from 205th Street to Gun Hill Road on the (5).

(E): Put more R46s and some R165s on it and take it to Francis Lewis Blvd.

(F): Take the R46s off and put some R68s and R160s on in. Run it express on the Culver. Add some stations all the way to 215th Street. (So my beloved Giovanna doesn't have to walk 10 blocks to 179th Station.)

(G): Put some more cars on that damn train!!! Rebuilt some stations (Van Alst being the first.) Take it to 179th Street during rush hours and weekends.

(H): Replaces the Rockaway (S).

(J)/(Z): No changes.

(L): Extend it to Weahaken NJ and connect to the (NJT) HBLR

(M): Put some R165s on it and take it from Metropolitan to Queens Plaza.

(N): No changes.

(Q): Take it to 3rd Avenue in The Bronx to Gun Hill Road (2)<5>

(R): No changes.

(T): Take it to 3rd Avenue in The Bronx to Gun Hill Road (2)<5>

(V): Have it run to Church Avenue as a Local in Brooklyn.

(W): Have run into Brooklyn and run express to Coney Island via the Sea Beach Express only during Rush Hours. Other times to 86th Street.

 

(1): Run limited express service from 103rd Street to 145th and again from Dykeman to 238th Street.

(2): Extend it to Kings Highway.

(3): Take it to Dyer Avenue via Express between 3rd Ave to East 180th and from East 180th to Dyer. Put some R210s and R142As on it.

(4): Add a <4> in The Bronx and switch the terminals to Flatbush.

(5): Add more service to Brooklyn and swap terminals with (4) to Utica.

(6)<6>: Let the <6> run all the way to Pelham instead of it turning it local after Parkchester.

(7)<7>: Extend it to Utopia and rebuild the platform to accommodate 12 Car Trains!! Or have 60 Foot-8 Feet Wide Trains run on it

 

 

(JFK): Resurrect it and have it run from 168th Street down the (A) line then on the (:D to West 4th, (F) to Jay Street, then (A) down the middle tracks, pass Howard Beach and own to a private el to JFK and serve every terminal.

The (:P(G)(M)(W) are not needed at Stillwell At all. Im backing up Pablo 100% on this one. The (Q) is NEVER crowded to capacity from Brighton Beach to Stillwell. It might Standing Room Only ( what train isn't during rush hour), but the (B) would just tie up the on-time, extreme frequent (Q)uincy Service.

 

My Plans:

 

(B) Hang on to some R40s for a while longer

 

(C) Trains from Washington Hts-168 St to Middle Village-Metropolitan Av;

Central Pk West / 8 Av Local / Via West 4 St to the IND 6 Av Line / Chrystie St Cut / Williamsburg Bridge / Myrtle Av Local. *Late nights Myrtle Av Shuttle; Myrtle Av- to Metropolitan Av only. *Replaced by (V) in Lower Manhattan and In Brooklyn

 

(F) Culver Express peak Direction. Between Church Av & Kings Highway, weekdays

 

(G) Extended to Kings Highway Via Culver Local. Late nights/weekends cut back to Church Av

 

(M) replaces the (Z) between Jamaica Center & Myrtle Av, then normal.

 

(R) Increased midday service on weekends

 

(V) Forest Hills-71 Av, Queens to Euclid Av, Brooklyn; Queens Blvd / 53 St / 6 Av Local / West 4 St Crossover to the IND 8 Av line / 6 Av Local / Cranberry St Tunnel / Fulton St Local. Except Late nights. *Replaces (C) in Lower Manhattan & In Brooklyn

 

(W) Like Pablo Said, needs to be extended to 9 Av-West End, weekdays.
