Re: Terrible delays on Queens Blvd today + Recent lack of holding lights at 36th/4th

Posted by Express Rider on Wed Jun 13 18:27:05 2018, in response to Terrible delays on Queens Blvd today + Recent lack of holding lights at 36th/4th, posted by BrooklynTrain on Sun Jun 10 19:34:55 2018.

I haven't the time to read through the entire thread responses - forgive me - but have a question - Sunday night, June 10th, around 9 pm, was on the platform at 71st. & Cont. ave. waiting for an E or F.

I don't remember, but the inbound exp. track may have shown red over red at the platform's west end - which would have meant a city bound exp. train had just left.

An empty R pulled into the local platform and left a few minutes later. A few minutes after that, an E pulled in which I got on, just to get my trip started (I really wanted an F, since I was going to Houston & 2nd).

Per the notices E's & F's were running local to Roosvelt. ave./Qns. Plz. (?). Anyway, the E that I was on, literally crept between stations, until Queens Plaza) - this is Rapid??? Transit? So I know we were following an R, but was the R also following another west bound express then? Were trains backed up at this time? Can someone explain what was going on?

If one can refer me to any one of the previous posts, which covered and explained this it would be greatly appreciated - so no info. would have to be re-posted and/or explained. Thanks!
