Good evening everyone. We have yet another difficult weekend on the rails. While there are some improvements, a few of the service changes in place last week have carried over to this weekend. The 1 is still not running past 14 Street. There still isn’t any train service between E 180 Street and 149 St-Grand Concourse. A and C trains continue to run via the F-line between W 4 Street and Jay St. Finally, E and F trains will run local along Queens Blvd. Adding to that list, there are no 3 trains running between Utica Av and New Lots Av. Also, shuttle buses are replacing N trains, which are running along the West End line in both directions, between 59 St/4 Av and Stillwell Av.
Rounding out this weekend’s mess, downtown F trains are running on the E-line from Roosevelt Av to Rockefeller Center. We seem to have traded a Culver express for a Brighton express since Manhattan-bound Q trains are running express only between Kings Hwy and Prospect Park.
In a bit of good news, the 5 is once again running for the weekend, even if it is just as the Dyre Ave shuttle. Also, for the 18,000th time this year, M train service has been extended to the Chambers St J-line station. Finally, Rockaway Blvd on the A-line is once again open in both directions.

Enjoy the weekend.
