(W) Terminating at Canal St?

Recommended Posts

I believe that some (W) trains terminate at Canal Street to relieve congestion along the Broadway line tracks that are not going on the Manhattan Bridge. This is to keep train traffic going on the (R)(W) lines, especially with the (R) since that's the only line serving stops via the tunnel and serving all stops betwee Court Street and 59th Street Brooklyn.

 

During middays, some trains are stored in the lower level tracks of the City Hall Street staton, those trains are put ins for the (W) during rush hours.

 

I hope I got this info correct, if not, please feel free to correct me.

Put outs go to City Hall lower level, yes.

I believe the reason why some Ws get put out at Canal is because if you send a bunch of Ws down the line to Whitehall, it can affect R service. If Whitehall middle isn't cleared and there is a Whitehall bound W at Rector, the Whitehall bound train has to wait until the terminated train moves out of the junction before the Whitehall bound train can proceed. This backs up the trains behind it.

oh thats cool i wanna go down there

 

Number 1, they're gonna kick you off the train, Number 2, it's off-limits, and Number 3, you could get arrested for tresspassing.

The train won't go into the station fully anyway,

I wish there was a easier and legal way for us to get down there. But would be kinda scary.

Judging from the photos I saw of the station, it's not really that scary. The station is rather intact.

It Would Cause They Havent Been Down There In Years

Despite being out of limits for passengers, the lower level is used rather 'frequently'. In fact it still resembles a station in service.

Really Then Why Cant We Go Down

 

It's off limits to passengers. Only train crews go down there, because the station down there is not fit for passenger operation.
