This might be a good place to observe that one reason trains terminate at Long Island City or Hunters Point Avenue is not because passengers want or need them to terminate there; it is probably done for the same reason that some rush hour E trains terminate at 179 Street instead of Jamaica Center. They are needed for other purposes, and they have to terminate somewhere but the capacity is not available in a preferred location. Once Grand Central Terminal is available to the LIRR, that will be a more preferred location for whatever electric trains currently go to Long Island City. Then the only thing remaining are the diesels that can't use the 63 St tunnel. Rest assured that if the diesels were all dual-mode and would fit in the tunnel, Long Island City and Hunters Point Avenue would be history. By the way, I would prefer to see Hunters Point Avenue stay open as I have a client within walking distance of there, but I am sure the railroad would just tell me that I could take the 7/E combination from Jamaica or maybe exit at Sunnyside if that is built and take the 7/E that way.
