I have a question for those who live in Brooklyn and those who visit them by taking the subway. Which four-tracked subway line do you like riding the most? You can choose more than one if you ride more that such one line every day. I'm talking about express and local service running in both directions, not the three tracked line with express service in peak direction.

 

Your options are

 

BMT Brighton (;)(Q)

BMT 4 Avenue (D)(M)(N)(R)

IND Fulton (A)(C)

IRT Eastern Parkway (2)(3)(4)(5)

 

(N) Sea Beach has four tracks, but the express tracks are not used in regular service so that does not qualify.

(F)(G) Culver line express tracks are not used in regular service.

I love riding the Fulton line. I think that link is IND subway at its best, nice easy curves, nice stations, and not too many timers. I do think the best part of that line is south of Euclid Ave and to Grant Ave. That area is alot like the Twilight Zone, but thats for a different discussion. I just wish that the connection the the El was not built and the subway line continued as planed.

The (7)/<7> does not count since it is only 3 tracks. It's a very nice run but when they add a 4th tack, the Flushing line can play in this game.

Central Park West is four-tracked, right? And Lexington Avenue?

I'm not in Brooklyn enough to pick from those choices. =(

Pick BMT 4th Avenue.

The Brighton Express, Fulton Express, and Queens Blvd express (during NON rush hours) are the only REAL express runs left these days..

 

hands down the worst is CPW S/B...

great question...this is my favoritge aspect of the NYC subway, the thing that sets it apart from other systems.NOW...that said, ill list my top 5 and why starting from my favorite 1 (A)(C) fulton line especially when riding an R38 2 (E)(F)(G)(R)(V) queens Blvd, where an R46 really flexes its muscles 4 (2)(3)(4)<5> eastern pkwy always loved this stretch. falling to #4 is (;)(Q) brighton line because i still cant get over the (D) being replaced, and i hate that its on 4th ave.i used to love this one and ride it most being from Coney Island tied at #5 (1)(2)(3) Broadway/7th ave & (4)(5)(6) Lexington ave and i probably underrated these lines with such a low pick the way the expresses just thunder past local stations riding so fast you damn near travel back in time.

Four tracked subway lines are too common in Manhattan (I should have expanded the choices there and Queens), and there's only one four tracked subway line in Queens Boulevard. (E)(F)(G)(R)(V).

 

I find Brooklyn's four tracked lines more interesting. Brighton Line (:((Q) would have to be my favorite of the four.
