Old 6 Av-Broadway-Brooklyn "KK","K" train service.

Recommended Posts

Have anyone of you transit workers(subway workers) have heard of anything about bringing back the old 6th Av/Broadway-Brooklyn service "KK","K" train service anytime in the forseeable future.

 

I had a proposal on how this service can work(if restored) and here it is:

 

Replace the "M" train in Northern Brooklyn and Queens with the "V" train but use the "M" train cars due to the fact that longer R46 cars can't run on this line and operate the "V" train between Middle Village-Metropolitan Av/Forest Hills-71 Av all day on weekdays, late nights and weekends, the "V" train would operate as a shuttle between Myrtle Av and Middle Village-Metropolitan Av.

 

The R46 cars that were running on the "V" train would then be transferred over to the "G" train to restore the 6 car trtains on that line.

 

Extend the "W" train into Brooklyn o replace the Southern Brooklyn part of the "M" train between Whitehall St and Bay Parkway, with the 520 Kawasaki cars and 60 Alstom cars all going over to the "N","Q" and "W" trains for a total of 580 cars and extra R68/A cars since these cars are going to the "B" train and again, extras left over, there would be enough cars to extend the "W" train into Southern Brooklyn.

 

Any comments you would like to share on my ideas that I just mentioned above, please post them up.

It's on the 2014-2017 (MTA) Capital Plan. They were considering it but it might be cut out due to cost overruns.

 

Yeah, they are probably considering it in the 2018-2021 Capital Plan as well.

Where did you hear that it is in the MTA 2014-2017 Capital Plan, they haven't even released this plan yet.

 

Oh, it was on the Onion last week, didn't you read it?
