Thanks for posting. It's an interesting read, but ultimately not much more detailed than a Subchat post. A number of proposals are put forth, but there are no ridership or financial analyses, nor even a simple study of existing capacity of either LIRR or NYCT lines which would connect to the RBB. In his R or V proposal, he even goes as far as to suggest that if the R or V were sent to Rock Park, ALL A trains would then be sent to Far Rock and the C to Lefferts, which makes absolutely NO sense, since if you're sending a full-time Midtown service to the Rockaways, you wouldn't need to send even more A trains there. If anything, the A could send even fewer trains to the Rockaways and more to Lefferts, but there's no reason to increase the Rockaways service from a peak of 10 A trains to 15 A trains and 10 QB locals.
