2009 Starts Off With a Bang--G @ Church and Bloopers (No,not the religous one)

Recommended Posts

I did a lil railfanning today and I so happened to be at Church Ave and find 2 (G) trains on the express tracks,one Church bound and the other Queens bound. After those 2 trains departed,more came into the station!! and after that,more!!! I think they were testing them for the future Church Extension. Now lets get the party started! :P:D

I think the (G)'s @ Church Avenue wasn't test for the extention...I'm sure it might have relying there to head back to Queens. As of the R-46 exterior sign reading "Queens Express".....its a different code the C/R pushes in so you got some that say:

 

F To 179 St/Queens

F 6 Av Local

F Queens Express

or

F Jamaica/179 St

F 6 Av/63 St Lcl

F Queens Bl Exp

 

F To Coney Island

F 6 Av Local

F Culver Local

or

F Coney Island

F 63 St/6 Av Lcl

F Culver Lcl

 

The ones with the "To" have the old code

the F train doesn't go exprees in Queens with the E?

 

The (F) is express in Queens 24/7 while the (E) is express during rush hours, evenings and weekends...late nights it makes local stops

Another thing: the older codes don't abbrivate "express" or "local"

 

When its "To" no it don't...here's an example"

 

A To 207 St/Manhtn

A 8 Av Express

 

or

 

R To 95 St/Bklyn

R via 60 St

R Broadway Local

Unless I'm going crazy,but the E is express all day during the week days...IDK about late night since I don't be on the E during that time.

Yeah I see a lot

But usually its abbreviated to Lcl or Exp, as it is done on the F with

Culver Lcl

Or 6 Av Lcl

Or Queens Blvd Exp

Queens Express or Queens Bl Express is misleading, just like Sea Beach Express.

 

(F) runs local east of Continental.

(E) runs express east of Continental weekdays only.

But for the F, you can't say Queens Local/Queens Blvd Lcl as well.

The best way-

 

F Jamaica/179 St.

F Culver LCL

F 6 Av LCL

F Queens Bl EXP

F Hillside Av LCL

i dont think it has to do with extension , it may have to do with relay, or maybe your right

The (E) is express between Jamaica Van Wyck to Manhattan from 7:30 AM to 7:45 PM. After that, it's only express between 71 Av - Continental all the way to Manhattan.

 

On weekends, its express between 71 Av - Continental unless a G.O. makes the (E) run Queens Blvd LCL.
