    NYCT BRIGHTON BEACH LINE

    November 14, 2018 by WILL2468

    In this Blog, I will address the Brighton Beach Line. Currently the Brigton Beach Line is the B & Q Trains. I have mentioned in Past Blogs that I would put the B Train back to the West End Line & Move the D Train from the West End Line to the Brighton Beach Line. As I have stated in Past Blogs, the B, D, N & Q Trains go over the Manhattan Bridge. As I have also stated in Past Blogs, My Proposal is the the J, W & Z Trains would go along the R Train Line from New York County (Manhattan) to Kings County (Brooklyn). The J, R, W, & Z Train would meet up with the B, D, N & Q Trains @ Dekalb Avenue. I mentioned that the J, W & Z Trains would stop along the R Train Line between Dekalb Avenue & Greenwood-Sunset Park-36th Street. I mentioned that th…
