Phase II of the Brighton Line Station Reconstruction Project? The closure of Avenue H, J, and M ?

 

Those stations are closed, for this G.O. I believe it's to improve the platforms. I don't think they'll do the exact same thing as Avenue U and Neck Road during this time period. From what I can see the (N)'s got a heavy load now service the (Q) riders too.

I know they're closed for the G.O. Thats what Im saying. Perhaps this G.O. is taking effect, to begin work on those 3 stations just like Avenue U and Neck Road.

You may be right about that one. I just got a pamphlet about that G.O. it says "We are rehabilitating the Brighton Beach Station" I should scan this later.

i think they are actually taking the final steps in the newkirk avenue rehabilitation. brighton beach is not between kings highway and prospect park. there must be an error in the take-one. if they were rehabiliating that station, they would shut down the (Q) between Kings Highway and Stillwell Avenue.

Actually I think they are closing Avenue H and Avenue J, that's where the constructions has been going on. And at Avenue J, the trees on the former side exit have been cut down, and the soil has been flattened.

There giving Newkirk ave station a rehab. Thats why they had those G.Os the past few weeks of Mantthan bound (Q) trains bypassing Newkirk ave. I used that station yesterday there was contactors all over that station (At the ground level) doing work on that station.

 

And brighton beach is not getting worked on, who ever typed up the G.O simply made a misake.

Oh man, Brighton customers are going to be as mad as mad hatters this weekend. And I do believe this is Newkirk Avenue station work since I did see some preliminary work going on there when I was railfanning with Urbanfortitude and R160B 8713 last Friday.

You have to leave EXTRA early as a result of this GO.

Fixing Avenue H, Avenue J, Avenue M and Newkirk Avenue makes more sense as of why this GO is going to occur this weekend. I'm a regular Brighton Rider myself on the (Q) so it's going to be a really interesting commute to take the (N) at Coney Island to Manhattan. The (N)(2)(4) will be carrying more riders from the (Q), and maybe the (F) too.

The (Q) was using three R160s and two R68 trains.

It was to be a cool G.O for me, as I was to report at PP at the regular time (shaving almost a half our off the trip), and have only the three truncated trips to 57. But My knee suddenly began acting up yesterday after hitting it on somethign weeks ago, and I'm out the whole weekend, and may have to get X-rays tomorrow. Could hardly bend it yesteday. Had to l;imp all the way to the doctor, and it got worse and worse.

 

Hate to miss a good rare G/O like that. (Like when I moved when I was to have the (D) to Whitehall last year). Especially with all the crummy G/O's I always seem to catch (going through the tunnel, all three trips, pushed past clearing time, etc).
