Re: Subway route letter uses

I had also heard that the reason the Z was chosen for the Jamaica Line skip stop was that there was consideration of using K for a proposed L Line skip stop. Actually since the H is not used officially for the Rock Pk Shuttle but only internally, the H could have been used for the 8 Av/Fulton lcl since the H was originally for the Fulton St lcl and it would not have been incorrect to use it for the service to Wash Hts which it is for the C. The IND had a specific logic linking the letters of its uptown branch lines with its Manhattan trunk lines, That logic went out the window when the B and C letters were swapped.
