As you peruse the subway’s future, remember that this is the final weekend to revisit subway past during 2013. The holiday edition of the Nostalgia Train will run for the final time this Sunday, leaving from 2nd Ave. every 90 minutes and making local stops along the 6th Ave. line to Queens Plaza. Hop on before it’s gone or else you’ll be left with faux-nostalgic photos of nostalgia.
Meanwhile, with the holidays comes a near-total shutdown of weekend work. The originally scheduled G.O. for the J train has been cancelled, and we’re left with just five advisories, none of which have brought impacts. Nonetheless, here they are:
From 11:45 p.m. Friday, December 20 to 4 a.m. Monday, December 23, Pelham Bay Park-bound 6 trains run express from Parkchester to Pelham Bay Park due to platform demolition and thru span work at Castle Hill Avenue and Middletown Road.
From 11:00 p.m. Friday, December 20 to 5 a.m. Monday, December 23, A trains are suspended between Broad Channel and Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue due to track panel replacement. Far Rockaway-bound A trains are rerouted to Rockaway Park. Free shuttle buses operate between Beach 90th Street and Far Rockaway.
From 12:01 a.m. Saturday, December 21 to 5 a.m. Monday, December 23, D trains operate in two sections between Stillwell Avenue and Bedford Park Boulevard, and between Bedford Park Blvd and 205th Street due to track maintenance north of Bedford Park Boulevard.
From 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Saturday, December 21, and from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Sunday, December 22, E train customers travelling to Jamaica-Van Wyck, Sutphin Blvd-JFK AirTrain, and Jamaica Center should note that some E trains travelling from Manhattan are rerouted to the 179th St F station.
From 11:00 p.m. Friday, December 20 to 5 a.m. Monday, December 23, Rockaway Park Shuttle trains are suspended and replaced by A train service due to panel installation.
