Finally Lower Bergen!

Recommended Posts

Lower Bergen was knocked out of service in 1980 due to a singal fire. That ended all (F) Express service during rush hour. According to the 2005 Capital Plan, the Culver Viaduct project would put the tracks beck into service and Lower Bergen would reopen serving (F) while (G)(V) train work local. The new plan does not say it anymore. Accoring to these pics, if Lower Bergen is opening up in 2012, it going to be need to be worked on NOW!

 

Special thanks to Robert Mencher for posting these up on Nycsubway.org

Lower City Hall is in better shape! And that's a G.O. that made the (A) and (C) lay-up there.

I passed through the lower level once. They were doing some work on the Coney Island track at 4th Avenue so the ran the (F) train through the express tracks to 7th Avenue.

Only the A went to Lower Bergen that weekend, to switch. The C was suspended, so the A ran local between Jay and 168th and Utica to Queens.

Yeah, that station really looks pathetic. If it is going to be used for service it really needs a big rehab.

Nah, I was on a revenue service (F) that ran through the station. It didn't stop, it just ran through.

Yeah, I think I recall the same thing as well.

NTrizzy, you said signal fire?

so the (G) would use the local tracks and go to Church Ave and the (V) to CI?

 

I doubt the (V) is going to Brooklyn, it was not in the plan.

 

 

What would be the point of the (V) going to CI? The (F) already runs there.

well they can make the (F)(G) run local via viaduct and culver,(G) to Church and (V) via viaduct and culver exp.

There is no point of it. The original intention was to send the G to Church, truncate the line permanently at Court Sq (I believe), base it out of Coney Island Yard and leave the F express thing as a future option.

I think that the (F) express should only run express between Bergen St. and Church Av. The (G) should provide local service.

 

A lower Culver express is too much.

 

Does the G.O express through Lower Bergen have to run at restricted speed?

Yeah

If say the G terminates at Kings Highway, it will affect the "F express" service between Church and Kings Highway.

The V running express definitely makes more sense. It'll run to Church Avenue just as how the B runs to Brighton Beach. Therefore, the G would have no problem turning in Ditmars Avenue on the center tracks.

Why do you want to send the V to Brooklyn and make it express?

I thnk the (V) should stick to 2nd avenue, there is no point of extending if it belongs to Jamaica, otherwise CI would overcrowd

 

The (G) Can be the Culver Lcl to church and (F) Express down there..

 

And how are people able to get down the bergan station under? I would love to go there

Yeah...they never do...there's a sign even at Jay that says "DO NOT STOP AT BERGEN LOWER LEVEL" by the front of that platform

I agree. I'm not sure, but there are some metal doors on the upper level platform. I've always been suspicious about them. For the photos taken, I'm sure that was probably from a relaying train crew.

Sadly the condition of that station is not too far off from the worse off stations still in regular use.

As for a (F) Express, i think the they should do a Parkchester thing. Have (G) Terminate at Kings Highway, then have (F) continue to Coney. It's a very good way that get the (6)<6>going smooth in The Bronx.

 

As for Bergen Lower, they should at least maintain it in running condition just in case a fire happen on the upper level if they wont use it in 2013.

Not a problem guy for the Photos, I was working a Switching Relay job for that G.O.. We were doing double ended relays. I was pulling the trains back into Jay St and had time to get off the train while in the station. I was testing out me new Camera and was having fun doing it. In joy the rest Dave just posted some more today over on NYCSuway.org. :)

Sounds cool. Was it really filthy down there? Any tiles on the walls? Nice pictures too.

Yes it was Filthy down there, Water dripping from the roof, mud on the floors. I waked back on the train and left foot prints on the car floors. No there was no tiles on the walls. Thanks for the complement about the photos.
