They must have had to do something to support the upper level when the Broadway el was rebuilt piece by piece, but that doesn't mean they upgraded its weight limits.

Ironic they had to keep a piece of non-dual contract Myrtle el for a block south of Broadway for the Broadway el's structural stability.

This and the 3rd Ave el was all about Dr Ronan, we're "modernizing", discarding specialized el equipment, here's a GM Fishbowl bus. The Franklin Shuttle is lucky to be around, though it used standard subway equipment.
