Re: Rush hour J to 9 Av

Of course there are: the Orange M requires 4 or 5 more train sets than the Brown M. They stole R160's from the J/Z, hence back-filled by retained R42's.

Where do you get that the Orange M requires more trainsets? The Orange M made a train surplus, not a shortage.
-Between Forest Hills and Essex St, Whatever the V ran, the M still runs in terms of headways, but for every train, we have the equivelant of 2 60 foot cars left over for every 75 foot car train of V converted to 60 foot cars of M.
-Between Essex St and Bay Parkway, every M train that ran between those two points at any given time are now surplus.
