What's the minimum amount of time LIRR schedules between trains at Jamaica? Likewise for platforms at NYP, both AM peak drop offs and PM peak pick ups. And how about time between trains on each mainline track?

It says for LIRR that:I was somewhat involved in that study, and more involved with work done later, and I can tell you that those numbers bear little relation to the real world. If you travel in and out if Penn and pay close attention in the peaks, you’ll see that real life is very different than what is specified in that study.
Trains arriving NYP and then turning back require 18 minutes
Trains arriving NYP and then continuing to West Side Yard require 6 minutes
Trains departing NYP that originate at West Side Yard require 15 minutes
we still have trains out of the yard that arrive late on platform...what's going on in the WSY?As many reasons a train is delayed in West Side as there are grains of sand on a beach:
