How does this put more trains on Queens Boulevard?

Does the (N) run more trains than the (R)?
Granted the (R) needs more service.

If all of the (R) trains remained assigned to and serviced in Jamaica, and all of the (N) trains remained assigned to and serviced in CI, then how could there be too many trains in Jamaica. And if you switched them one for one to the opposite terminals, then the crowding would also be unchanged.

Yes there will be a few more man hours running trains to the yards, that is a cost that could be borne with.

The advantages are clear: No switching of tracks in Manhattan. No switching of tracks in Downtown Brooklyn, where is the mucho crowded tracckages, this in turn translates into faster rides and greater tph.
