Re: (7) line extension stations will feature platform-to-ceiling doors

Posted by Olog-hai on Sat Sep 8 18:37:16 2007, in response to Re: (7) line extension stations will feature platform-to-ceiling doors, posted by Rail Blue on Sat Sep 8 17:59:09 2007.

the (7) train is very deep and doesn't have any stations east of GCT. So it's not a very good 42nd Street crosstown

If they're building this limited-use extension and were able to find the money for these inane platform doors, they can find the money for escalators/elevators and additional stops east of GCT (which will be necessary especially in the event of the SAS coming "online"). Further, there's the matter of service further east on the 7 train. Flexibility is the word here. If people are getting the E train, they'll also use the 7.

LRT/BRT would be better for getting from the PABT to most locations on 42nd St

BRT is anathema to this forum (and I'm citing train/bus instead of bus/bus). As for the much-touted 42nd Street LRT, which I wouldn't mind, I'll believe it when I see it.
