About all I ever remember is that to board it is best to walk to front. Has rush hour service ever used a motorman at each end to speed up reversing the trains especially rush hours ?
In the NY Subway?
Not that I can recall. It should be pointed out that, at present, the train operator at each end also does double duty as conductor depending on which station the train is at.
Example: At Times Square the T/O on the "front end" once the train has stopped and the brakes discharged will the open the doors. When the train is ready to leave the same T/O will close the doors. At Grand Central the T/O on the Grand Central end will do the same.
It has not been indicated if they will reinstate a conductor on the 6 car trains.
