Re: R train on the LL at West 4th

Posted by mrw on Wed Aug 1 19:55:59 2012, in response to Re: R train on the LL at West 4th, posted by Bill from Maspeth on Wed Aug 1 19:44:25 2012.

It has happened to me -- Queens bound.
-- Over the D from Atlantic to Bway/Lafayette
-- Over the M from W 4th to Queens Plaza

Of course when the train pulls into those stations, most passengers just stared and couldn't figure out where it could possibly be running to. I just yelled out 'M train' and that helped.

I've noticed that most conductors could do a poor job during reroutes of announcing to passengers at stations where that train is going -- for example on a D train rerouted to Kings Highway, all one conductor repeatedly said was "D to Kings Highway", saying "D making F stops" would have been far more helpful... better yet, can they just not quickly change the signage at least at the front of the train?
