Re: Rush hour J to 9 Av

Amazing, the current on-line schedule of them dated 12/4/11 is almost identical to my printout of it of Sept 2002 issuance.

Z's arrive Broad Street every 9 to 12 minutes from 8:08am to 9:00, and there are 6 of them. 5 of 6 northbound J's die at Eastern Pkwy, so I can only assume they are Z's, and one of those Z's stays a J.

Knowing that, how would you run form 9th Avenue ?

If a thru service:
Extend the Z's to 9th Avenue, and originate as many from 9th Avenue to neatly replace them for their northbound trip to Eastern Pkwy or Jamaica. Overnite and weekends, where do you lay them up ? 36th Street yard ? C.I.Y. ?

If a Brown W, same timetable as above but stuff into sidings north of Chambers or Canal Street.

PM rush, repeat everything in reverse.
