A new train line for 6 Avenue

My (Y) train will run from 179 Street/Jamaica Queens via Queens Boulevard local. Then it will merge via 53 Street to 47-50 Streets and connect to the (B) (D) and (F) trains. Then it will run under 6 Av as a local and Connect with the (A) and (C) at Jay Street and merge on to the express tracks on the IND Fulton Street Line and operate as an expresss to Lefferts Blvd. This will give the (A) less terminals. The (C) will continue as a local on Fulton Street. The (Y) will follow this pattern all times except late nights it will be a shuttle from Euclid to Lefferts.

It'll be orange, like all the other 6th ave lines.
Just wondering, why Y? Why not just make it a V extension?

So If The (Y) Train was for real and It used R32's the rollsign box would looks like this:

Would the (Y) then become the longest line in the (current) system? Should it be express on 6th Ave.?

A (Y) train sound very interesting. I'd have it run express on 6 Av and replace the current (B) as a local.

I take that back. I would have the (Y) as an express on Queens Blvd to Roosevelt Av then local along 6 Av. I would have the (Y) terminate at Broad Channel.

QUEENS BLVD EXP
6 AV/via 53 ST LCL
TO BROAD CHANNEL.


"This is a Manhattan bound (Y) express train. The next stop is Lexington Avenue/53 Street

The Y isn't needed past Forest Hills, everyone will take the F since it's express.

A (Y) train? I like the idea but it should terminate at Continental Av. The under 6 Av then terminate at Euclid.

The switching problems at both W4 and Jay St. wouldn't allow the entire plan to work.

The QB express tracks can't handle anymore trains and are at max capacity.
