IRT Lexington Avenue Line
The Lexington Avenue Line (also known as the East Side Line and the Lexington–Fourth Avenue Line) is one of the lines of the IRT division of the New York City
New York City
Subway, stretching from Lower Manhattan north to 125th Street in East Harlem. The portion in Lower and Midtown Manhattan
Manhattan
was part of the city's first subway line. The line is served by the 4, ​5, ​6, and <6> trains. For decades, the Lexington Avenue line was the only line in Manhattan to directly serve the Upper East Side
Upper East Side
and East Midtown; this four-track line is the most used rapid transit line in the United States. Its average of 1.3 million daily riders is more than the total riderships of the transit systems of San Francisco (452,600 weekday passengers), Chicago (772,900 weekday passengers), and Boston (569,200)

Railway Electrification System
A railway electrification system supplies electric power to railway trains and trams without an on-board prime mover or local fuel supply. Electric railways use electric locomotives to haul passengers or freight in separate cars or electric multiple units, passenger cars with their own motors. Electricity is typically generated in large and relatively efficient generating stations, transmitted to the railway network and distributed to the trains. Some electric railways have their own dedicated generating stations and transmission lines but most purchase power from an electric utility. The railway usually provides its own distribution lines, switches and transformers. Power is supplied to moving trains with a (nearly) continuous conductor running along the track that usually takes one of two forms: overhead line, suspended from poles or towers along the track or from structure or tunnel ceilings; third rail mounted at track level and contacted by a sliding "pickup shoe"

List Of Current Systems For Electric Rail Traction
This is a list of the power supply systems that are, or have been, used for tramway and railway electrification systems. Note that the voltages are nominal and vary depending on load and distance from the substation. Many modern trams and trains use on-board solid-state electronics to convert these supplies to run three-phase AC induction motors.Contents1 Key to the tables below 2 Systems using standard voltages2.1 Overhead systems2.1.1 600 V DC 2.1.2 750 V DC 2.1.3 1,200 V DC 2.1.4 1,500 V DC 2.1.5 3 kV DC 2.1.6 15 kV AC, ​16 2⁄3 Hz / 16.7 Hz 2.1.7 25 kV AC, 50 Hz 2.1.8 25 kV AC, 60 Hz2.2 Conductor rail systems2.2.1 600 V DC conductor 2.2.2 750 V DC conductor2.2.2.1 Bottom contact 2.2.2.2 Side contact 2.2.2.3 Top contact 2.2.2.4 Not yet determined2.2.3 1200 V DC conductor2.2.3.1 Side contact3 Systems using non-standard voltages3.1 Overhead systems3.1.1 DC voltage 3.1.2 AC voltage 3.1.3 Th

Rapid Transit
Rapid transit
Rapid transit
or mass rapid transit, also known as heavy rail, metro, subway, tube, or underground, is a type of high-capacity public transport generally found in urban areas.[1][2][3] Unlike buses or trams, rapid transit systems are electric railways that operate on an exclusive right-of-way, which cannot be accessed by pedestrians or other vehicles of any sort,[4] and which is often grade separated in tunnels or on elevated railways. Modern services on rapid transit systems are provided on designated lines between stations typically using electric multiple units on rail tracks, although some systems use guided rubber tires, magnetic levitation, or monorail.[citation needed] The stations typically have high platforms, without steps inside the trains, requiring custom-made trains in order to minimize gaps between train and platform. They are typically integrated with other public transport and often operated by the same public transport authorities

New York (state)
New York is a state in the northeastern United States. New York was one of the original thirteen colonies that formed the United States. With an estimated 19.85 million residents in 2017,[4] it is the fourth most populous state. To differentiate from its city with the same name, it is sometimes called New York State. The state's most populous city, New York City
New York City
makes up over 40% of the state's population. Two-thirds of the state's population lives in the New York metropolitan area, and nearly 40% lives on Long Island.[9] The state and city were both named for the 17th-century Duke of York, the future King James II of England

IRT Flushing Line
The IRT Flushing Line
IRT Flushing Line
is a rapid transit route of the New York City Subway system, operated as part of the A Division. Originally an Interborough Rapid Transit Company-operated route, the Flushing Line, as originally built, ran from Flushing, Queens, to Times Square, Manhattan; a western extension was built to Hudson Yards in western Manhattan, and the line now stretches from Flushing to Chelsea, Manhattan. It carries trains of the 7 local service, as well as the express <7> during rush hours in the peak direction.[2] It is the only A Division line to serve Queens. It is shown in the color purple on station signs, the official subway map, internal route maps in R188 cars, and route signs on the front and sides of R62A subway cars. Before the line was opened all the way to Flushing in 1928, it was known as the Corona Line or Woodside and Corona Line
