Oh okay:

I had previously read that some of the streets were why you had the narrower cars/island platforms and so forth.

Still, and especially if you were going to connect the Myrtle EL to another line (again, after Navy Street and most likely to the Montague portion that today would likely be a (W) from Metropolitan Avenue to Astoria), you still would need to lengthen the platforms to accommodate at least 480' if not 600' trains. As the platforms likely needed to be upgraded anyway, you'd be looking at lengthening the platforms and consolidating stations along the way to better reflect the longer trains.
