I see two problems here. First, Carroll isn't a terminal and you can't turn trains there. You need to drop them out at Bergen, run south of the station  to the reverse marker(can't go all the way to Carroll and back) change ends and come back north to Bergen. Secondly, there is no way you are going to be able to turn both (F) and (G) trains making that move unless each line is running on 20 minute or greater headways. A better idea would be to end the (F) at Jay and use Bergen lower to turn them.

Lastly, why are you calling Church-Coney Island service the (V) when it's actually an (F) running in two sections?

The reason for this G.O. is to REDO the entire 75 Av interlocking in order to allow for less bottlenecks, as well as creating more space of higher-speed switches. Currently, 75 Av has space for 11 cars (660 feet), so by shaving 60 feet off the length of the platform and moving/removing some timers and control lines, there will be more space for the switches south of the station.

The G.O. is a good idea, but the timeframe of 2 months is too short- lots of developed area to dig under (assuming cut and cover) in an around QBL.

If the (J) would end at Brighton Beach, that would be longer distance and time-wise than to Kings Highway, and those (J)s would be carrying air going further.

You are talking about two extra stops which takes less than 5 minutes. The crews would also be able to use a real crew room where more than one person can use the bathroom at a time, as well as a real dispatcher's office with a computer. Also trains at Brighton Beach don't have to relay. This is the third time today where I've responded to a fantasy GO where the author isn't taking relaying time into consideration. You know with GO's like this the road T/O is gonna have to relay one end of the train. So they're gonna be on the train even longer than if you just let them continue to Brighton Beach.
