In addition to these six new pages you'll find hundreds of historical notes and details of interlockings as they existed in years past, as well as opening and closing dates of various facilities and tracks. And for the first time, a more comprehensive look at chaining lines has been presented, with graphical depictions of when lines begin and end, and how lines are tied to zero points.
As always, the book depicts every track (with track numbers), every yard, every station, and many diverging route home signals. The book also encompasses the latest capital improvements, signal changes and track/signal renewal projects, including the newly-reopened 42nd St. Shuttle reconfiguration. As with past editions, Grand Central, the Park Avenue tunnels, Penn Station, PATH, and the Staten Island Railway track maps are also included. Current fleet data and train service requirements have also been updated.

I'm not a New Yorker but subways interest me greatly. I'll never see the system, but the amount of information in the publication is impressive and more than the 2021 issue. Very helpful if watching Youtube videos.
Excellent - even for me!
I’ve bought this just about every year for my iPad Pro. It looks great and is easy to use. I don’t live in NYC, but I enjoy reading the intro, etc. and I spend some time looking at new track diagrams. I can’t believe how much effort goes into this! Great job!
This book is a treasure
Even though I am not a New Yorker, the city of New York in all its splendour is endlessly fascinating to me. Urban rail transit is also endlessly fascinating to me. I peruse this book, which is at the intersection of my two fascinations, for hours at a time. Please keep up the good work. Train a successor or successors. Each fall I look forward to the new edition of this book. Thank you!
Making a Good Thing Even Better
I regard Tracks of the New York City Subway as the "subway fan's yearbook". Each year, I am amazed by how well Peter Dougherty continues to improve his excellent series. The 2024 Edition is no exception. As usual, production quality is wonderful, and the new historical content is very impressive. The PDF version is really good; I downloaded it immediately upon purchase, and then I loaded it to my laptop, iPad and phone. I also appreciated the fact that I purchased the review copy of the PDF and then Peter subsequently emailed me a copy of the final edition. No matter how much you think you already may know about the NYC subway, there always are more facts to be learned and multiple changes. This book delivers, every time.
i enjoy books on track diagrams especially the NYCTA since i once worked for them back in the day and also for being a railfan
