Just to second what you say:
- Converting to B division is a 19% increase in capacity (over the current 11 car trains) and requires widening the Steinway tube or some other major reroute.
- Lengthening all platforms to 12 A division cars is a 9% increase in capacity and is far simpler than widening the Steinway tube.
- Increase tph from 28 to 36 once CBTC is fully installed and tested is a 29% increase in capacity, and can be done in addition to either of the above.
The 2nd and 3rd capacity increases provide a lot more bang for the buck, and a lot less disruption, than the first.
