New Shiny F Train Subway Cars But No Queens Bound F Train Service To Roosevelt Island This Weekend

Image of new F train Subway Cars From AM New York

An attentive reader forward a link to this AM New York article describing the new subway cars on the F train serving Roosevelt Island. According to AM New York:
... Finally, F train riders have something to celebrate.

New digital trains started rolling out on the F last week, adding some automated enjoyment to the much-maligned line....
Unfortunately these new F train subway cars will not be making Queens Bound stops at Roosevelt Island this weekend. The MTA is reporting no Queens Bound F Train subway service to Roosevelt Island this weekend. The F Train will be running on the E track so in order to get to Roosevelt Island from Brooklyn or Manhattan by subway take the F to Roosevelt Avenue and then take the Coney Island bound F Train back to Roosevelt Island. For service to Queens from Roosevelt Island, the MTA suggests taking the Q102 Bus to Queens Plaza for the E and the R train or the F from Roosevelt Island to West 4 and then the uptown F train running on the E line.

Happily RIOC is not reporting any Tram service advisories for the weekend but expect the Roosevelt Island bound Tram to be more crowded due to the F train service disruptions.
