Re: Put-Ins/Pull Outs

Yes, I suppose you would have to send 2 overnight Essex lay-ups lite to 95, then terminate them at City Hall northbound and bring them right in. IDK if Bay Ridgers and Sunset Parkers would bitch about the short trains tho.

It would be good for the PM rush to send them out when there is a gap in service on the s/b R. I realize that it wouldn't do people much good if they were getting on north of City Hall. Announcements to ride a s/b W to City Hall would likely be ignored.

Lay them up again at Essex after that trip. Since other M's layup there they can swap trains the next morning if needed once a barn request or inspection on one of the 2 trains pops up.

Downside: you would have the same crew on each train from putin to layup. Transit no longer likes having jobs with so little road time. On the PM, since train is a gap train, it will be unpredictable as to what time the crew lays up at Essex, has lunch, then deadheads to Met to be available for a trip to CTL.
