Known problems:
The routes for the line's both alternatives has a number of errors: At different locations, the train goes like a ghost through walls to another track; The local alternative uses the same tracks as the express alternative but requires stops at all stations even that the trains is not adjacent to any platform at some stations; The since 1956 abandoned station Myrtle Avenue also requires a stop according to the schedule.
