Re: BMT Canarsie Line history question.

Given capacity constraints at Park Row, I can imagine that even if the BRT wanted to run such a service, it would have been impossible to do so.

There's no doubt that Park Row was used to its max before 1908. That's the year of its max use. It's also the year that IRT service was extended into Brooklyn.

The Park Row and Sands St stations were designed to exceed the nominal 40 tph capacity. They ran 66 tph (in each direction) as per an article in a contemporary engineering journal.

Park Row/Sands St service levels were even higher during the bridge shuttle only days. They topped out at 90 tph, with a 24 hour average of 45 tph.
