Re: Straphangers to MTA: Donít cut (G) train extension !

The (K) is a true supplemental line, hence why I only have that as a 4-5 tph at max, and because such a (K) line is really a supplement, that could even be just 3-4 tph and 2 tph overnights since its main purposes would be for people too lazy to walk up to the (A) platform at Chambers and for those who need specific stations from specific others along 8th Avenue to where it could even run at all times as a five-car train as opposed to 10.

My real point in doing that exercise was to point out that the only real way to me that we can have a Culver Express would be for the (C) train to be branched off the 8th Avenue line at West 4th with that serving as the Culver Express and running to Coney Island. That's why unless you can get enough cars to cover such changes I noted (which as you noted right now would be difficult due to a car shortage).
