Re: Best Article I've Read on Reasons to Reactivate the Rockaway Beach Line

As said previously on this, which assumes by the time this is done the SAS would be in place:

(R) replaces the (N) as the full-time route to Astoria and also switches terminals with the (D), with the (D) going to 95th Street-Brooklyn and the (R) to Coney Island (this so the (R) has Coney Island for a yard since the (D) has Concourse Yard). (D) is now a 4th Avenue local and no longer skips DeKalb Avenue, while the (R) remains a 4th Avenue local from 36th to Atlantic-Pacific. Both are now 24/7 routes with the current overnight (R) shuttle eliminated.

(N) continues to operate as it does to Astoria, but on weekdays only from 5:30-10:00 PM. Late nights and weekends, the (N) goes with the (Q) to 96th Street-2nd Avenue to supplement SAS service during those hours, however, when needed outside of weekdays the (N) can run to Astoria instead.

A new (W) train operates Whitehall Street-Rockaway Park via the Queens Boulevard local and the connector to the former LIRR Rockaway Line, replacing the (R) as the Broadway line via QB..

The (M) becomes a 24/7 line to 71-Continental.. The (G) also returns to 71st Continental at all times. Rush hours and other times as needed, both lines are extended to 179th Street while during those hours, the (F) stays express all the way to 179th Street.

That to me is how I would handle it.
