IND Crosstown Line
Extent and service
The only service to use the Crosstown Line is the lime green G. During rush hours and middays, no trains run over the line north of Long Island City-Court Square. At other times, the G continues north along the local tracks of the IND Queens Boulevard Line.
The north end of the Crosstown Line is a flying junction with the IND Queens Boulevard Line and 60th Street Tunnel Connection just south of Queens Plaza . The line then travels south as a two-track line, except for a center relay track south of Court Square. At the turn from Marcy Avenue to Lafayette Avenue , two center tracks appear, merging into one after crossovers to the main tracks. These tracks were to be used for a split to another line in the 1931 IND Second System plan. This center track continues through Bedford-Nostrand Avenues and then ends with crossovers to the main tracks, but space remains in the center at least through Classon Avenue for the third track.
At Hoyt-Schermerhorn Street, the Crosstown Line comes into the middle of the four-track IND Fulton Street Line . Cross-platform transfers are available between the lines, but no track connections exist. After Hoyt-Schermerhorn Street, the line turns south and ends as a merge into the local tracks of the IND Culver Line, just south of the split of that line into local and express tracks.
