What would be the most freakiest reroute?

Recommended Posts

Freakiest reroute (this is not physically possible in both directions) I'd say have the (7) go run on the (N) from Queensboro Plaza to Ditmars Boulevard. Now the (N)(W) and (7) can run on the same tracks, although you'd have a six inch gap between the (7) train cars (r62A) and the platform.

I think the (7) over the (N)/(W) to Astoria. Even better would be the (7) to Coney Island over the (:((D)(F)(N)(Q) or to 95th Street on the (R). That would be great.

Actually, with the switches the way they are, it is physically possible to run a train like this in both directions. It's just going to be very slow, and would involve backing trains up if they are coming from the Times Square-bound local track.

 

Check out this track map from nycsubway.org.

Run a (7) train going from it's normal route then go on (N), that's easy, but going to Manhattan from the (N) Astoria line, that's difficult, and like you said very slow. Manhattan bound (7) trains are still on the Flushing bound track and the first available switch to the Times Square track is after 45 Road Courthouse Square.

The (V) via the Lexington Avenue Line. Oh the looks on customers faces:p

 

Yes!:(

 

 

 

Actually the flushing line had provisions for both divisions up to a point & you could back it up over those tracks as shown in the map. I don't think people would really notice to be honest, till they saw the wrong landmarks coming out of the tunnel.

...and then after that while u cant believe ur eyes u hear the whistle sound of a " cry baby " 160 coming by 2 make things normal....but wait-nope, its an R142 instead!..and on the display it said (Z) and the 4 car set was painted in the " silver and blue scheme "

Reading this thread reminded me of a really weird dream I had last week.

I got off the (4) at Burnside on the downtown platform, looked across at the uptown platform and saw a SEPTA El train pull up.:eek::confused::eek:

I actually believed it when I first woke up. I remember thinking that a $2 one-way fare between NYC & Philly via SEPTA would be great, yet uncomfortable.

Anyone have weird dreams like this before?

The (M) returning to Brighton Local service

 

I remember when they said that was "temporary". I wish they all terminated at CI again. It may not be feasible these days, but as someone who lives closer to the end of the line, it sure would shorten some of my trips to other parts of brooklyn. (Until the Bay Ridge line turns subway :D )
