Babylon trains often are the ones slowing down to make Forest Hills and Kew Gardens. At any rate, common sense would say that rather than a total mixup of schedules, that they stick with a simple plan: Babylon, Ronkonkoma, Huntington, Long Beach and Port Wash trains all either serve Penn or GCT. Hemsptead and Far Rock alternate to provide half-hourly service to Brooklyn. Make track 1 @ Jamaica the "Penn Station" track, Track 2 the "Grand Central" track and Track 3 the "Brooklyn" track. Not in the slightest, especially since the Babylon branch has several "super" expresses that are just Woodside>Jamaica>Valley Stream(sometimes not)>Freeport & Babylon and more trains running back to back in certain times of the day. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
