Re: Fate Of The R32s?

I agree. While I'm not a mechanic and don't work for the MTA at all, the R32s sure look a lot better than the R42s..which may reflect that the TA plans to keep them longer and is taking better care of them.

But think of it like this- there are over 200 R32s left, and they provide quite a bit of flexibility, both on 8thAve/Fulton and "out East", being able to run easily in both places, and having a decent number of them makes it easy to split them as well.

The remaining R42, OTOH, being few in number, have fewer mechanics familiar with them, and therefore, for maintenance purposes need to be kept together. And- when they did try to run R42s on 8th Ave in 2010, it didn't go so well- something about the conductor's cab being misaligned with the boards? (somehow, that wasn't a problem from 1969-88 or so..)

I have to agree with you here. With no disrespect at all (and I mean that) towards any other poster, I think what's gone on is that we're all so used to bashing Cuomo (and there's a lot to criticize about him), that we view anything he does through a bad lens.


But in this case, if the new plan is sound, it should go ahead, despite the costs already sunk into the full shut down. The full shut down would have been enormously disruptive- not only to the subway and to street traffic, but to peoples' lives on both sides of the East River. even Manhattanites who don't use the L would've been very seriously inconvenienced by spillover effects- like people jamming alternate routes and all the extra buses on the street.


So- yes, if there is a practical way to avoid the shutdown, it should be attempted. It would be almost irresponsible not to try.

I've never worked for MTA in any capacity. But my lifetime of observation leads me to agree with you. The single-tracking plan likely won't work, , for the reasons you describe. Also, work on the 1 Ave Station might also require some weekend full closures.

But even weekend and/or night shutdowns are preferable to the full 15-month shutdown. Assuming the new plan is sound, I'm in favor of it.

Similarly, the Port Authority asked the MTA to fully shut down the 1 train through WTC a few years back, for 18 months, to facilitate building new WTC. The MTA only agreed to weekend/night closures. It made the WTC job slower and costlier- but MTA wanted its peak hour customers to have service. And I'm pretty sure that the southern end of the 1 gets less ridership than the L between Bedford and 8th Ave. So I'd think the MTA wouldn't really resist internally the new plan.

What I fear most is that because this proposal is being advanced by Cuomo, it'll be run like the Enhanced Stations projects, causing a lot of inconvenience for a long time for little tangible benefit while avoiding the major issues (or worse, even if the plan is sound, that it'll be rushed and done sloppily).

That's possible. I consider the Enhanced Stations to be a waste of time and money.

But that, in and of itself, is not a reason to .favor the 15-month shutdown. Let's hope that the new plan is executed well, with quality work; even the work, as originally planned, could have been done poorly.

Here are three thoughts.

1. Skip 1st and 3rd Aves when single tracking. 1 Ave is important on weekdays but less so on weekends. I'd say skip Bedford too because it's a short walk from Lorimer, but that would overload the platforms at Lorimer. Maybe the time from USQ to Lorimer could be reduced to 6 min.

2. Run 2 trains in a row in the same direction. Outbound, the first train after a 14 minute wait would be an express stopping in Brooklyn only at Bedford, Lorimer, Myrtle, Broadway Jct, and beyond. Two minutes later would come a local. By making the first train an express, you don't overload it because lots of people need the local. Again, for the express I'd be tempted to say skip Bedford too to balance the load between the two trains better.

With both suggestions together maybe you could manage 7.5 tph, which is what the weekend demand roughly is.

3. Obviously, run the M all weekend. Add frequency to the G even if demand doesn't require it, just to get some people off the L.

I'm dislike the idea of a 15-month full shutdown either, and agree that the original plan could have been poorly executed as well (but I was in favor of it as being less painful than the 3-year alternative presented at the same time). But, to non-civil-engineers (such as myself) who can't easily judge the alternatives on technical merits, the suspicion comes from the appearance that Cuomo is once again overruling the MTA for political, not technical, reasons.

How is 15 months of complete shutdown preferable to 15-20 months of partial night and weekend shutdowns?

I think a lot of people aren't convinced that the latter is feasible, just because Cuomo says so.

From a previous message:

"

There a few other issues with the #1 closure that you spoke of. For example, just where does the #1 "go" when it is un-able to terminate south of Chambers Street?

I remember those very tall beams of light after towers fell, the entire year that #1 and #2 trains were sent to/from the Bronx, Manhattan and Brooklyn - with the #1 taking over for the #3 line.

I remember those many weekends with the switching moves with #1 trains ending at 14th Street-Seventh Avenue, while #2 and #3 served all local stations south of 34th Street. The shuttle buses taken between Chambers Street and South Ferry were an ordeal.

There is also the "Manhattan Centric" point of view - The L-train was NOT BEING SHUT DOWN - only the portion in Manhattan.

Huh?

The overwhelming use of the L train is for interborough traffic. Shutting down the L "only" in Manhattan affects Brooklyn residents far more than it affects Manhattan residents.

The nearest station to where I live is 3rd Ave on the L. Yet I would be affected far less by the L shutdown than someone who lives near an L station in Brooklyn and works in Manhattan.

However, the method proposed by Cuomo doesn't get rid of the old cables, meaning that there will be less tunnel space in the future. In other words, he's just kicking the can down the road, whereas the MTA plan cleans it up completely.

This is a pretty good idea. Running an express immediately followed by a local would also help balance out trains past Broadway Jct (they'd have evened out by then). Put maps on the platform indicating it.

This is also helped by CBTC - the need to slow to 15 before exiting a station is not necessary as it isn't using the old signal system. They can go through stations at full speed.

They should also do this inbound. Trains would leave Canarsie evenly spaced, and the express (which would be the 2nd train) would catch up to the local right at Lorimer.

1. Skip 1st and 3rd Aves when single tracking. 1 Ave is important on weekdays but less so on weekends. I'd say skip Bedford too because it's a short walk from Lorimer, but that would overload the platforms at Lorimer. Maybe the time from USQ to Lorimer could be reduced to 6 min.

According to yesterday morning's rush hour real time feed, some actual travel times between the stations were 15 seconds less than scheduled. This would reduce turnaround time to 14 minutes.

Skipping a station would reduce time by 15 to 30 seconds for each station. The 15 seconds is dwell time and the other 15 seconds comes from braking/acceleration time. However, the crossover switch position negates any braking/acceleration time gain at 3rd and Bedford Aves. This would account for 30 sec @ 1 Ave and 15 sec each at 3 & Bedford Aves. These savings could reduce the turnaround time to 12 minutes and no margin.

The distance between Union and Wythe Aves along N 8th St is about 3600 feet.It also involves crossing under the BQE at Metropolitan Ave. That's already been identified as a dangerous intersection. (If 3600 ft is a "short walk", I'd advocate abandoning the SAS.)

2. Run 2 trains in a row in the same direction... maybe you could manage 7.5 tph

I did mention what I proposed was the most wasteful way possible. The service level depends on headways as well as the turnaround time. I proposed running 6 trains in a row @ 90 second headways a few years ago. That would have provided 12 tph. A more modest service level would permit fewer trains in a row and longer headways.
