It adds some time to the schedule plus they are often very crowded after leaving Grand Central Terminal and 125th St.It also cuts line capacity when one express crossing over ties up both tracks 1 and 3, or 2 and 4, including time needed to slow down and accelerate before and after the actual stop. You see the same thing at MetroPark and Trenton.
