Re: [ARTICLE] New LIRR train station planned for Belmont Park

Race special trains are run at off peak hours where they can be timed to minimize impact on regularly scheduled services and changing at Jamaica is no big deal. It is much different during hockey season where you will want bulk of trains arriving between 6 and 6:45 when Jamaica is extremely crowded with eastbound peak trains filled with commuters. Imagine holding up all those riders so one train destined for Belmont can cross 4 tracks to access the current layout. That doesn’t account for trains held behind them further impacting service because you only have so much space to hold a train.
