That last one should probably read “71 Av-bound R trains are rerouted”.

Drinking game: every time a tourist going to AMNH gets on an uptown C at 59th this weekend, we take a drink.

Seriously though, why are they doing a C replace the D and D replace the C GO this close to Christmas? I get why they don’t want trains crossing everywhere, but the work could probably wait a few weeks.

What’s the point of this particular GO? I assume it’s something on the 6th Av express tracks above 34th, otherwise you could simply put the D on the local track after Broadway-Lafayette.

Also, again with my usual grumble: can we really not handle 20tph (I think at most 20 on Saturdays, at most 18 on Sundays) on the 8th Av local tracks when there is no work on 8th Av? Really the C, D, and E ought to be able to share the local track on the weekend, so that only the D is affected by work on the D.

I believe there is work at 7th/53rd. And I agree: while it is simpler to just not use Canal interlocking and segregate the C and D, the service is ultimately being provided for the passengers, many of whom are likely quite confused by this GO.
