Why did the 5 train got cut to nereid Avenue? Why cant the 5 run to Wakefield during PM rush hours?

Unlike the last thread you started (which honestly should've just been part of the Random Thoughts thread), this can be answered just by doing some research.

For direct access to the nearby 239th Street Yard. Having all those Nereid Avenue (5) trains terminate at Wakefield will cause delays because by then, the (2) would already be transiting from its PM Rush Hour 6-minute headway to its evening 8-minute headway. On top of that, trains would have to be completely cleared of passengers, which can easily take a good 5 minutes or even more, before reversing direction and running empty to the yard.
