That's positively sloppy compared to many days on the 1-2-3 and 4-5-6 ex-IRT lines in Manhattan.  It was not uncommon for a 1 and either a 2 or 3 to be within no more that a couple of seconds of stopping at 42nd, 72nd, or 96th in either direction during the years I was going from 70th and Lex to Columbia at 116th by way of the 42nd St. Shuttle.

Wow. I wonder if Jamaica can match that. Never ever expect Amtrak to sync that close.

 

Jamaca (LIRR) had 3 way meets.  The high level platforms made it easy to walk thru the vestibules of the middle train to transfer between the outer trains on either side of it.
