Re: Tuscarora Almanac for October 10

The tracks take a descending dip at each end of the "G" line tracks at Hoyt-Schermerhorn, as to go under the infrastructure, so there is no wiggle room to put any switches there between those and the ones for the "A"/"C" Fulton Street Line tracks. Also, there is a wall that separates the Manhattan-bound Fulton Street Line local track and the Queens-bound Crosstown Line track just west of the Fulton/Lafayette combo.

It should be noted the "G"'s Fulton Street station along Lafayette Avenue is the closest to Fulton itself, with the main entrance/exit there at its west end of the location, plus a secondary one at the east end for South Portland Avenue. Meanwhile, the "A"/"C"'s Lafayette Avenue station has it positioned a bit further away from Lafayette itself, with the entrances/exits at South Portland Avenue and South Oxford Street along Fulton Street.

There were some painted lettering on the mezzanine tiles leading towards Greene Avenue. A free transfer connecting tunnel built under South Portland Avenue would not be practical and feasible, and oddly despite having a mezzanine at the Lafayette Avenue station, there is no reverse direction free transfer available because of the metal fencing that separates there, a la like 75th Avenue on the Queens Boulevard line, unless you can use your unlimited Metrocard to do so.
