(A) and (B) Switch on St Nicholas Line

Recommended Posts

Posted on:1/2/2009 6:32:42PM

 

Due to signal problems at the 59th Street-Columbus Circle Station:

 

Far Rockaway-Lefferts Boulevard-bound (A) trains are running on the local track from the 125th Street Station to the 59th Street-Columbus Circle Station.

 

Brighton Beach-bound (:) trains are running on the express track from the 125th Street Station to the 59th Street-Columbus Circle Station.

 

Please expect delays in service on the (A)(B)(C)(D) trains at this time.

 

 

 

now why does the (A) and (B) gotta switch only cuz of signal issue, and is the (B) skipping 135th, and wat about the (D)(C)

Most likely, the signal problem is preventing these connections:

 

Local to 53rd

Express to 8th.

 

Thus, (:)(D) are forced to run express and (A)<A>(C) must run local.

 

Most likely, 135 St. has normal service because they want the affected section to be as small as possible, so switch at 125, not 145.

There used to be an <A> smiley, but it was removed for some reason.

 

The (A) Rockaway Park Specials are <A> in the TTN.
