What about allowing select NJT one-level trains to go past NYPS, turn around in SSY and then into GCT via the ESA? It won't be faster than taking the subway from NYPS to TSQ and then the shuttle to GCT, but it will be a bit more convenient for those who are not in a hurry.

ESA uses 3rd Rail , while NJT uses overhead...it wouldn't work...

I think this is easy to install fare barriers in LIRR concourse of Penn Station.

The Train in question is a Summer special , one departs from NYP and another from Long Island City for Montuak. It makes a 5 stops along a 110mile route and takes 96mins.... They just need to add more trains.... The rest of the network runs service as often as 5mins during rush hr... The layout of Penn Station would make fare gates hard to install....

I think this is easy to install fare barriers in LIRR concourse of Penn Station.
Noting the terminal design of ESA, MTA attempts to create sort of commuter rail on steroid. With simple approach design, trains can run faster near the terminal. Stop time is reduced though.

Agree, and if the signal system upgrade, it will let more trains running on the lines.
