A note about old service patterns[edit]

[1] appears to show a scissors crossover between the southbound tracks south of Broadway-Lafayette Street, corresponding to the still-existing northbound one to the north. That would be how the rush hour CC terminated at Broadway-Lafayette between 1949 and 1954 (see also [2]). If the crossover between the express tracks north of Second Avenue existed then, they used that, but why didn't they stop at Second Avenue? It's likely that when Sixth Avenue trains ended at Broadway-Lafayette or Second Avenue, they used the crossovers north of West Fourth Street-Washington Square. --NE2 16:16, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Template neglects to show 'M' transfer at Delancey-Essex[edit]

The current 'NYCS Nassau south' template set for the transfer at Delancey Street – Essex Street neglects to note the fact that the M also stops there (on the Nassau Street Line platform). Should a new template be made for this situation?
~kiddRell_ (talk) 07:57, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Fixed. Nassau north is the wrong template, it's {{NYCS Williamsburg}}. Thanks for pointing that out. Acps110 (talkcontribs) 08:11, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
