Re: Riders & pols: We want to keep extra (G) train stops; ''5 Stop Fan Club''

There is some evidence that, at some point, the plan was to make 7th Avenue local and 4th Avenue express. The 1929 Belcher Hyde maps of Brooklyn show the text "NEW SUBWAY TO BE CONSTRUCTED" along the IND South Brooklyn Line route. Plate 53 shows "NEW SUBWAY EXPRESS STATION" at the intersection of 4th Avenue and 10th Street, while Plate 46 shows "NEW LOCAL SUBWAY STATION" on 9th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. Given that these are land/insurance maps, I don't know how much authority to put in what is written. Some planning maps for the IND would be nice to confirm or refute.
