(E) to 62nd Street-New Utrecht Avenue

Recommended Posts

Most should already know, but if you weren't aware, (E) trains were rerouted down the (R) past Queens Plaza due to yesterday's blackout. While trains would usually terminate at Whitehall during these reroutes, a G.O routing all NB trains via the Manhattan Bridge from DeKalb Avenue to Canal Street prevented this. The trains needed to be sent into Brooklyn. 

This particular (E) train was originally supposed to terminate at 36th Street, as heard in the announcements in the first part of the video. It is likely that this train would have gone to 9th Avenue, and then be sent back north towards Jamaica. This did not happen because an (R) train occupied the middle track at 9th Avenue. This train was instead sent down the West End Line to 62nd Street. It was supposed to go express from 9th Avenue to 62nd Street, but that didn't happen for whatever reason.

Here's a bonus of some (6) train action below Brooklyn Bridge in Manhattan (from last week):

Enjoy! The (E) and (6) saga continues...

It can’t go on the express track if train is occupying at 9th ave. Only option was express on the local.
