Re: Underbuilt IND?

Keep in mind that the south end of D1 and D2 tracks is in the Court Square station.

Here's the idea I was thinking of now.

E Jamaica Center Peak Express
F 179th Street Peak Express
R 179th Street Local
M Jamaica Center Local

During three-track operation in the peak direction, E trains would be on D4 (Jamaica-bound express) track, and F trains would be on D3 (Manhattan-bound express) track. All trains in the off-peak direction would run on the local tracks. No trains terminate at 71/Continental.

The conflicts would be on:
D2A (Jamaica-bound) track between Jamaica-Van Wyck and Briarwood in the AM peak.
T1 (Manhattan-bound) track at 21 Street-Queensbridge in the PM peak.

During the AM peak, Manhattan-bound E trains on D4 track would use D5 track (normally used for layups) between 36th Street and Queens Plaza, arriving at Queens Plaza on D3 track.
