Virtually the same as the R160, and a small fleet that won't make a huge noticable dent in everyday rolling stock at your station. The R211 is what to look forward too. As well as infrastructure upgrades.

J, Z Train Riders Want Shuttered Station Entrances Open on Gates Avenue
https://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/201...op-up-brooklyn



Quote:
By Camille Bautista

Advocates have asked the MTA to open shuttered subway staircases and entrances along the J and Z lines to brace for the looming L train shutdown.

There are gated staircases at 12 locations along Broadway, according to 2014 data.

Earlier this summer, a group of high schoolers sought to improve the busy commercial corridor and requested that the MTA open an entrance to the Kosciuszko station near DeKalb Avenue.

“We are already looking at the potential of reopening closed entrances where it’s feasible to do so,” MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz said, though no further details were available on whether Gates Avenue was being considered.
This is such low hanging fruit for the MTA. They should open as many closed entrances as they can. I'm glad the idea is gaining more traction lately.

Really I've heard the archaic horror stories of the bad old days of shutting gates to simplify crime management. There are still rough spots but nothing like then.

A proposal to re-introduce the 9 train and extend it to Brooklyn

This seems to very handily ignore the different loading gauges and vertical profiles. In order to make sense, it would need to be extended out to meet the other Brooklyn IRT lines.

The map seems to suggest it will terminate underground at 4th & 9th and not continue to the Culver division. So I don't think there would be a concern about gauge and height.

That's what I'm saying about the elevation differences. And the fact that 4th & 9th isn't the best place for building a new subway terminal. I would want to have better servicing facilities and serve more markets, like Brooklyn cross-town.

Eh, at least if they wanted to do that, extending the Second Avenue Subway from Hanover Square might be a better choice...

And of course, providing an interchange to the T at South Ferry/Whitehall Street from the 1 and R.

This is just me thinking, but how possible would an extension of the G into the Bronx via Astoria, in order to form a true crosstown line be?

Wouldn't extending the Eight Ave line into Brooklyn have more sense than extending the Broadway-Seventh Ave line? Cranberry Street tunnel is a bottleneck between it and the Fulton Street line whitch is underused. With this it could take over the service on the Canarsie line south of the Broadway Junction, thus relieving the load from the overcrowded Canarsie line (L train).

Or extend the planned Second Ave line that's suppose to end just short of South Ferry station and connect it to Fulton Street line?

I guess that's what most people are saying.

Build new tunnels from Hanover Square to Court Street, evict the Transit Museum, and run the T though Court Street and on the Fulton local, with A/C both running express, C going to Lefferts and A only to the Rockaways.

Was there ever the realistic thought of building a or some new tunnels immediately after sandy, knowing that damage to existing tunnels was bad enough to need major repairs? Possibly a more resilient new tunnel that would be a detour for repairs but also a permanent tunnel?

Aside from giving an additional urgency to the Hudson River tubes? not really.

Astoria's repeated politically successful NIMBYism in relation to a subway to LaGuardia Airport makes any such proposal moot, at least for the next several generations.
