Re: Full Shutdown of L Train to Be Halted by Cuomo

I can think of four things:
(1) Court Sq wasn't an option for most of those years, it was Queens Plaza or 71/Continental.
(2) The 63st Connector opened, and with it all the signalling was redone, along with removing the southbound connection from D3 to D5. As far as I can tell none of this should have had any effect on turning trains.
(3) It's all controlled by a master tower nowadays.
(4) They've renovated Queens Plaza station, perhaps they removed the crew rest area in the process.

None of this seems like an insurmountable obstacle. TBH I bet the true reason they don't do it any more is:
(5) They want people to forget that track connection exists, so that no one tries to put the G on Queens Blvd again.
