Weekend work impacting just one subway line

By · Published in 2012

We know it’s almost Christmas. We know the Culver Viaduct project is forever plagued with problems. We know Joe Lhota is leaving in nine days to try run for mayor. We know the R train has returned. And that’s about it.

There’s a whopping one service change worth knowing about this weekend. Otherwise, just watch this video of the Transit Museum’s model train show. It’s shot from the viewpoint of the trains themselves. You can catch the show at the Transit Museum outpost in Grand Central.

From 11:45 p.m. Friday, December 21 to 5 a.m. Monday, December 24, Coney Island-bound D trains skip 167th Street, 161st Street and 155th Street due to track maintenance work at 167th Street.

    Is there a reason why it’s just one?

    • MTA usually scales back weekend work at this time of year so workers can be with their families and tourists can figure out how to get around the city without too many problems.

      • Andrew says:

        Actually, the MTA usually scales back weekend work at this time of year to preserve capacity, since ridership is heavier these weekends than most.

    Supposedly the MTA Thought the world was going to end, too.

    By the way, when is the 7 line extension project even going to finish?

  3. Someone says:

    Also, which track maintenance is there to do on an interlocking to a siding? The MTA might as well remove the siding and the switches, to save money.

    Even this one GO is apparently cancelled.

    Something was up with the 2 train this afternoon between East 180th Street & 3rd Avenue/ 149th Street, Manhattan bound trains were suddenly running express while 5 trains were running local. This happened around 12:30.

    In the spirit of your comments on uniting PATH and the NY subways, might you consider adding PATH data to the weekend service reports?

    Hi from Wayne PA. In the spirit of mass transit geeks, I took NY subway/ PATH /. NJT train / SEPTA here.

    Slow but cheap.

    So apparently no C this weekend, A running local all the way. Would’ve been nice if that were announced…

    That video is amazing! This year’s holiday train display is definitely my favorite of the ones I’ve seen to date.
