They long forgot their old railroad mentality like in the old days they could split the out of service and run a 3 car train. Now they lost the gap due to "capital improvements"!

Itís not brilliant in that distance-wise, assuming you primarily used the trains on tks 1 or 3 in the past, much more of the trip is now walking instead of riding.

The passageway itself isn't as long as I thought it would be.

7th Ave to 6th is about 1000'. The 6-car trains are 300' long and probably stop about 200' short of 7th Ave. So maybe 500' or half the distance from 6th to 7th.

The east end of the trains at GCT is pretty much were it used to be, right?

So now the east end, instead of being 300' from 7th Ave, is maybe 500'. So 200' of extra walking in return for (we hope) capacity improvement and lower hold time in each station. Also no futzing around heading for a train that pulls out before you get to it.

But in the old station you had to walk around track 1 and 3. So if you come in on track 4 it is a lot easier. And track 1 is only slightly longer, actually 3 cars longer since it now is behind where the end used to be. That's 150'

Two of the three tracks previously made it easier to not miss a train that was about to leave than both new tracks now.
