Re: When BOWERY Was Considered a Terminal

I suppose that one OTHER reason for the "terminal" at Bowery station is a kind of timing issue.

Once the passengers have departed the incoming train at Bowery that train (now empty) could make its way along the "down-town express track" and park there along with any other trains ahead of it until the pocket track (or tracks) ar Canal Street are clear and available for an incoming train.

However "much time" any train has to spend being "parked along the express track" waiting to use the pocket track (or tracks) at Canal Street to return to Bowery and beyond - no passengers are stuck waiting inside that train.

Just a thought.
