They also used to run shorter train and and key by red signals. The present signals are also set more conservatively. Current emergency braking performance seems to be less than in the past. Organizational practices might had been better then too. Just having crew in place before trains are pull into terminals speed up turnaround time, esp at 111th st and Willets Pt.

Running 40tph requires low station dwell time. The time allotted seems to be 30-40 seconds, depending on train performance. You need better railcar interior and door layouts than what is present on A division for that.
