Re: It's officially announced: F Express service in Brooklyn

Posted by New Flyer #857 on Thu Jul 11 10:47:46 2019, in response to Re: It's officially announced: F Express service in Brooklyn, posted by Bill from Maspeth on Thu Jul 11 08:01:16 2019.

Presuming that the two express trains will come from Coney Island and not only Kings Hwy, I would say that it's impossible for a Coney Island F express to overtake the Coney Island F local in front of it. So from Ave U and south, I doubt there would ever be occasion when passing up any train would be time-saving. From Kings Hwy to the north, it would only be helpful to be fully sure that the next train is an express and running on time.

Translated into practice, nobody will pass up the first arriving F train. The few hundred people who end up routinely on the expresses will either do so somewhat by accident or because they used their devices to track the express and were convinced (whether by past performance or the current look of it) that it would be punctual.
