Re: Subway route letter uses

So this all sounds like the idea with the RJ was to provide Nassau St service from 4th Avenue. The confusion starts though with how to get the trains to 95th St in the first place, and those are the early morning RJ trains from Jamaica. The reverse is true in the evening. Since those trains are running, the QJ isn't needed at those times, and since the QJ has a yard at the end of the line, it doesn't have the issue of needing trains coming from the opposite direction. The first QJs are put in from CI or BB for northbound.

The part that is just confusing though is the gap in service northbound in the evening. They have these extra RJ trains that need to go back to ENY, and they fill the service to Jamaica and return to ENY or run as JJ. In the meantime the QJ isn't needed, but the evening isn't over and it starts up again? How many more runs were there?

I lived along the Brighton line almost my entire life in one place or another, and I don't remember this at all.
