Smooth sailing on rails — except for Coney trips

The Brooklyn Paper

Nothing too crazy with the trains this weekend, folks, oh … unless you’re going to Coney Island. In a world built on reason, rationality and empathy, work on the D line would be done in the winter. But we do not live in such a world.

All changes are from Saturday, July 14 at 12:01 am to Monday, June 16 at 5 am unless otherwise noted:

D: No direct service to or from Stillwell Avenue from Bay Parkway from 10 pm Friday to 9 am Saturday, 8pm Saturday to 9 am Sunday and 8 pm Saturday to 9 am Sunday. Take the shuttle. No trains between Stillwell Avenue and 62nd Street from 9 am to 8 pm, either.

F: Coney Island-bound trains are rerouted via the A line from Jay Street-Metrotech to

West Fourth Street.

J: No trains between Jamaica Center and Crescent Street from 6 am Saturday to 10 pm Sunday. Take the shuttle.

Q: Coney Island-bound trains run express from Prospect Park to Sheepshead Bay from 11:30 pm Friday to 5 am Monday.
