Special thanks to CurAke79 for suggesting this trip. Let's begin at my home.

Burnside Av, a (4) and a <4>. Which will you take? (I call it a <4>, but it was signed as a (4) though).

Bedford Park Blvd. Local service in the peak direction was horrid at 12 minutes a train until 7:50.

The local came first:

Then the express:

But we skipped Mosholu Parkway on the local for some reason...

Videos: 6 and 10 minutes in length respectively:

 

 

As you can see in that last video, held at 149th for 3 minutes, then we were held at 138th St (afterwards) for 4 more minutes, completely destroying any time savings. But the folks transferring from the <6> had seats. Great. Next up, Pelham:

They ended the <6> at 9:30, converting all trains to (6) trains...I decided to bail after this. One more video:

 

 

Although this was a long ride from ENY, it was good to actually test this out. And I'm calling it a failure so far, but it is only the first day, so I'll hold out until next week. Hope you enjoyed. If you can, go test it for yourself before it's over.

Awesome shots. But yeah I guess it sucks now that everyone lost the time that they saved, but hey, one day down, many more ahead. Let's see what happens tomorrow and afterwards.
