how is the cbtc signal system for flushing line differs from the l line?
  by Kamen Rider
Well for starters the Canarsie line is a Siemens system and the Flushing line was built by Thales.

It's a dumpster fire for one, whereas the L line is at least generally functional ;)

Supposedly being turned on 24/7 starting Monday, I can see the angry headlines now when the rush turns into a mess...

It's Wednesday, and no angry headlines yet. Can anyone confirm whether it has been turned on? I may be riding the 7 this weekend.

According to an article in AMNY from last December, they are having issues and are supposedly running a partial CBTC with the expectation that it will be fully operation in Spring 2018

0945-1445 weekdays and all day weekends between Main Street and Woodside. Still lots of running in bypass. Lots of BIE's coming into/leaving Main Street.

My source: someone in CBTC training this week, which trumps Subchat, just sayin' ;)

Why didn't they use Siemens for the #7 Line CBTC also?

Recent video of 7 Line CBTC in operation. Flashing green indicates CBTC.

Apparently as of last Friday the R62s have been pulled from service on the Flushing Line, which would indicate 24/7 CBTC operation between Main Street and Woodside.
