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

The E and F are on express tracks. No need to change them, and the express tracks do not have a flying junction (or any junction) at W4st.

The LOCAL tracks do have a flying junction, and either *all* 8th Avenue Locals could go via Rutgers, with all 6th Avenue Locals going to Chambers WTC and no switched need be touched.

OR... Send the (F) to Coney Island via Rutgers/McDonald and the (M) to Euclid via Cranberry. Then you would send the (C) to Metropolitan via Houston Street and the (E) to Chambers WTC. The wear on the switches is negligible, The merging of trains is and issue, but manageable.

In any event the LION has not yet pronounced his definitive decision.
