Re: MTA gives PTC contractor ultimatum - Newsday

If Siemens were to be removed from the project, would another company have to start from scratch? Or could they use parts already installed, or are the different companies systems incomaptible?

If I recall correctly, in the 2013 Metro North crash at Spuyten Duyvil, at least two of the four fatalities was found to have been ejected out of the windows of the Shoreliner coaches. How would a larger wi...

Re: Solution for loud trains: eliminate seats facing each ot

Eliminating seats facing each other will not eliminate the problem. Even when they sit it the normal 3 across/2 across groups like that will continue to be loud if they are traveling in groups of more than 5. they will yell across multiple seats to talk to each other.
