Re: Bedford Av (L) stop - going to get real worse

What they really should do that wouldn't even cost that much is just tie in the other end of the spur track on the 6th Ave. end, so that trains could drop out at 6th Ave, and head back without having to go to 8th Ave. at all. Trains are usually stuck waiting at 6th anyway, so that time could be used to clean them out.
You couls specify a L service that only runs from Myrtle to 6th.

I sent in the suggestion, and they rejected it based on not wanting to add platform conductors!

I also sent in an idea to add a dropoff platform to track 3 at Canarsie, which is the first yard track. The platform would lead right out to where the B42 is. There is space where the fense between 2 and 3 is. They would only have to upgrade the signals to mainline standards. They rejected this too.

I also think the Myrtle dropouts might be better suited at Bway Jct, because there are a lot of people going the other way transferring to the A,C,J; and instead of having to clean it out and relay, you just close down, open the other side, and go back out from that same track, over the switch.
