Re: SEPTA Rebuilding for the Future Updates

Although the Station & park and ride in the location may work for the borough's goals along with a TOD element, I don't think the borough (not counting the NIMBY's) would want the layup yard located there. The Wyeth property has been a subject of planning study in the Borough for many years. General...

I’d agree they should probably have delayed launch until after this outage.
One can also argue, that they launched service before a busy holiday weekend and college semester move, which may of been a milestone for the service.

Re: Hartford Line CtDOT New Haven-Springfield - NHHS

The through ticketing on the ACL is a vestige of Amtrak service to Atlantic City. Amtrak rehabbed the line, and re-started passenger service solely under their name, then NJT had concurrent with Amtrak, then NJT took over all operations when Amtrak decided to dump the line.

Would the “stalled freight train near Woodbridge” that was announced on NJ 101.5 affect this week’s run?

Re: Foxboro Commuter Rail Extension

Some of the problems with morning service on the Franklin line is indeed the 741-706-740 tango at Walpole. The morning casualty is a stop to lose one of two trains within 10 minutes, one that will remove a main reason of delays for the highest ridership to the line.

Re: Viewliner II Delivery/Production

To expand: NS was an engineering design flaw, along with federal funding that would expire for the conglomerate of States in the NS order.

Amtrak’s order of V-II’s didn’t have the time stipulations attached.

Re: Hartford Line CtDOT New Haven-Springfield - NHHS

That upgrade would allow a 30 minute headway schedule in and out of Hartford, from the 40 minute schedule currently in place. Getting to a clockface type of schedule would be paramount for the lower half of the line.
