SUBWAY LINES: HOME PAGE:



On December 1, 1955, a small connection was made between the 60th street tunnel and Queens Blvd line. The concept of this connection was to allow (BMT) trains to merge with the (IND) tracks & vice versa. It allowed for an extended BMT #1c train between the Brighton and Queens Blvd subway and renamed the . Although, the service moved to the Astoria el 11/15/1960 - 11/27/1967, the small connection was used for various other lines throughout the years like the train service on 11/27/1967 combining the Broadway subway with the Queens Blvd subway.


The went from Whitehall to 71st/ Continental, but the deficit of the 1970s phased out the service on 8/27/1976 because it was redundant with the train in Manhattan. So they consolidated the line as an extended beyond 57th street to the Queens Blvd subway 1976 - 1987. On 5/24/1987, the switched northern routes with the in Queens, and has stayed this way since. This was done to make it easier for the train to go to the subway shop in Queens rather than travel all the way to the Coney Island train yard. The already had easy access to Coney Island. It became more logical for the train to be serviced by the Queens shops.


The Queens Blvd subway also had a very brief service during the 1930s from Church Ave to 169th street. There was no Sixth Ave subway at the time so it had to use the Eighth Ave subway to get to Queens. Service began on 4/24/1937 until 7/1/1937.
