Re: Why additional (truncated) G service morning rush-hours

I can think of two occasions in regular service.

Before the BMT invaded the Queens Boulevard Line, GG's ran short trains during the non-rush hours. At the shoulder, the would be reconnected in the Continental Ave station. The previous GG would be in the front of the platform. The second GG would come in up to the rear of its leader and discharge its passengers. The two trains would be coupled to make a longer train.

It used to be that shorter trains were operated during non-rush hours. On the Flushing Line, non-rush hour trains would be 8 cars long. 3 cars were left close to the bumper at Main St. Following 8 car long trains would move in and terminate by rolling up to the parked 3 cars.
