Merge with IND Sixth Avenue Line?
This page should be merged with the IND Sixth Avenue Line because as how it is seen by clicking here. Ned opinions. --imdanumber1 19:07, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
- Oppose. This article should be merged with BMT 63rd Street Line, with which it shares an almost identical history, and with which it is co-extensive for practically its entire route. In addition, the MTA does not consider the 63rd Street Line to be part of the 6th Avenue Line. Marc Shepherd 19:26, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
- Double Oppose: This should not be merged at all. The BMT and IND 63rd Street Lines are not coextensive. They share one station on different tracks. They have different origins and different destinations. They are connected only by a single scissors-crossover in each direction.
If you merge these, how could you not merge the Brighton Line connection under Flatbush Avenue which shares the same STRUCTURE with the IRT Line? -- Cecropia 22:01, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
- I would merge IND 63rd Street Line and BMT 63rd Street Line for the same reason the two Archer Avenue Lines were previously merged by Larry V. The history and station stops of the two are practically identical. If you look at the lengthy history section of IND 63rd Street Line, you'll see that practically all of it would need to be copied into BMT 63rd Street Line. They were built at the same time, by the same people, for the same purpose. Marc Shepherd 22:11, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
why are you calling this the "IND" 63rd Street Line?
If I don't get a justification against this soon, I'm going to have make major edit soon, and make sure no one undoes it. The 63rd Street Line was not built by the IND, the IND has been defunct since 1940. This article is very misleading, as an uneducated person would think this is an IND line. It was built by the MTA, it's far beyond unification, therefore a new subway line shouldn't be called IND. DanTheMan702 (talk) 02:26, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
- This is called IND, because that is the division it is a part of. Each of the three original operators still exist as divisions, and train radio frequencies follow this pattern. There are several radio change points that occur when a BMT/IND train crosses from one to the other, most notably Grand Street southbound for B and D trains moving from the IND to the BMT. This also occurs at Lexington Avenue/59th Street northbound for R trains from the BMT to the IND.

This must be one of the deepest cut and cover lines ever, if not the deepest.
Merge with BMT 63rd Street Line to become 63rd Street Line?
There's really no need for two separate articles for the same line. Epic Genius 19:24, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
