From someone who has worked with every piece of revenue equipment in both divisions:
-All trains have a balancing speed of approximately 45 MPH.
-Due to grades (aka "DOWNHILL") it is possible for trains to go faster. Regardless, trains will not get much faster than 50 MPH in most locations in the system. There are only a handful where that is even possible, and it is possible to go even faster in the 60th St. Tube provided you take the timers a certain way. They've recalibrated them so they're not quite the same as they used to be, but you can still get a train close to 60 MPH in that location. Not specific to one type of equipment or the other.
-New Tech equipment "appears" faster to the untrained eye because they can sustain 2.5 mph per second acceleration longer than SMEE equipment, but they also do not maintain their acceleration well beyond 45 MPH since they are specifically programmed not to, and only a grade will help them beyond this. SMEE equipment performs better above 45 MPH as far as continuing to accelerate, unless you happen to get a tech train where the calibration is slightly off, and it allows for a higher speed.

Boom.

New York City Subway has many through-routing services from Brooklyn via Manhattan to Queens/Bronx for its customers. Through-routing is often an ideal solution.

I know long stretches of the road have been closed for quite a while, but I never knew if this was for utility relocation or for the construction of the station facilities?

I'd guess the latter, but I never found any information about it.
Do you have any knowledge of the matter?

I'll go on record as saying they'll do it.

I'm not feeling as cynical as most, these days...
We shall see.

Apply that to all present day car classes as well as the now retired SMEE fleets. No matter what the theoretical horsepower of a car class is (or was) those four words, along with the signal system and track layout, are what determines how fast trains operate in today's system. Perception can play tricks on people but I'd venture a guess that an old, non-airconditioned, SMEE train and a NTT train running side by side on the Rockaway Flats or timed on a measured stretch of the Sea Beach line would surprise many of you folks. I know the T/Os out here know exactly what I'm saying. Many years ago this topic came up on the forum and I related what we were told in schoolcar back then. There is no such thing as a stupid question about train operation but the OP question is misguided at best. The correct question, according to NYCT instructors, is how fast does a train stop. Those who obsess over the first question will most likely never complete their probationary period was what they said back then.. My years pounding the road in the IRT proved them right. Carry on.

WTC Hub should be done by 2019 and SAS Phase 2 should be open in the mid 2020s.... Phase 3 & 4 are the longest and most complex....and Phase 4 could use a redesign..
