According to subway enthusiast and railfan 2nd Ave. Sagas, the MTA will be resurrecting the W Train from Lower Manhattan to Astoria this Fall.
Don’t call it a comeback, but six years after getting unceremoniously dumped by a cash-starved MTA, the W train will make its triumphant return this fall, the MTA announced today. As part of the plan to maintain current subway service levels for Astoria once the 2nd Ave. Subway opens and the Q is diverted to the Upper East Side, the agency will restore the W train in a few months, before the Second Ave. Subway opens, effectively replacing the Q in Astoria.
