Re: Franklin Avenue Shuttle

Right, in 1995:

It was only because of protests the line remained.

Still think today the line and the existing Myrtle Avenue EL could be absorbed (with a rebuilt upper level at Myrtle-Broadway and rebuilding a relatively short stretch of the old Myrtle EL) into a Myrtle-Brighton Line that can be a "Black V" from Metropolitan Avenue to Coney Island with it and the (B) both being locals to Coney Island (in this scenario, (B) on weekdays and (V) as a 24/7 line) with the (Q) becoming a 24/7 express between Brighton Beach and 96th/2nd (late nights extended to Coney Island). Obviously, this would require a rebuild of the Franklin Shuttle back to two tracks and 600' stations.
