Subway Map[edit]

I was looking at the subway map diagram that we have in the article when I looked at the new 2nd Avenue Subway section. The map had the new line as servicing both N and Q trains. However, the 2nd Avenue Line only services Q trains. Why does the map have the N train as part of the new line? The map also shows the N train going into Queens, which it does do.

There are a handful of rush hour N trains that run up the 2nd Ave line (they used to short-turn at 57th St, but that's no longer possible because of the changes with the opening of the 2nd Ave Subway, so they follow the Q up that way). That said, as per the discussion at WT:NYPT, that sort of exceedingly minor variation doesn't belong on the map, or in infobox headers. The map here should reflect the MTA's map, and that does not have an N train marker along Second Ave. oknazevad (talk) 05:32, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
Is there an existing map that we could use to fix it, or should we request a new one? If we needed a new one, we would only have to erase a small part of the map. PointsofNoReturn (talk) 18:46, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
You can contact the uploaded and ask him to remove it. oknazevad (talk) 23:35, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

I was the one who updated CountZ's subway map. I'll edit it to remove all the limited rush hour services if we reach a consensus. PrecipiceofDuck (talk) 14:34, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

I would support that. PointsofNoReturn (talk) 18:36, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
As would I. And based on the discussion at WT:NYPT#Some trips, there is broad consensus that odd ball rush hour trips are too insignificant to include. oknazevad (talk) 17:54, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Recentism and bloat[edit]

This article is starting to get bloated and is starting to reek of WP:RECENTISM, with the addition of all the various initiatives, challenges, and technological processes of the past decade or so. Perhaps Technology of the New York City Subway needs to be split out. – Train2104 (t • c) 13:43, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

Actually, that's kind of the point of the Modernization section. But sure, we can split it later. epicgenius (talk) 15:20, 12 August 2017 (UTC)
I fully agree that it needs to be split. This is something that I have been wanting to do.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 10:21, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
