As I mentioned, thatís not the info I got. Since there is no connection between tk 4 and the other 3 shuttle tks, trains have to be swapped by partially dismantling the bridge over tk 4 at the T/Sq end in order to get the shuttle train to the mainline. Tk 3, on the other hand has a switch connecting it to tk 1 from which trains can be swapped out with a minimum of difficulty. By eliminating tk 4, the complicated work at the T/Sq end would be eliminated and the train on Tk3 can be easily switched tp tk 1 for transfer to the mainline. As for the train consists since the only line that utilizes other than 5 car units is the Flushing Line, the logical consist would be unitized 5 car trains of either R-62s or R-142s.
