No, that's why I said the Q stays the same, under my plan the Q STAYS AT 57 st, that way when SAS comes the Q simply extends to the UES.

As I've said millions of times the N/R just need to run more trains per hour, the W was never needed in the first place which is why I continue to scratch my head on why the MTA refuses to just increase on the N/R lines during rush hour.

It's called the MTA is broke. That's why they can't add extra N's and R's

Don't think the <Q>will come back because it was used for the brighton exp more likely the W will come back as Rush hr to whitehall or to 9th ave.

Nope but it does get a a few riders from the whitehall station and that's it.

I think once the Q is rerouted to the East Side-96 Street, then W service should be restored with the N returning as the Broadway Express.
