Post by Tallguy » Sat Nov 09, 2019 2:29 pm

I am looking for the site of a power operated high platform lifting edge that is somewhere in the NYC area. Can anyone help me?

Are you talking about how some platform edges can be moved to accommodate freight clearances and stuff like that? I can assure you nothing exists on NYCT property, and it's pretty doubtful on PATH or SIRTOA.

Mod note: originally in NYC Subway/PATH forum. Moved here as it seemed more relevant.

It was also posted under Long Island Rail Road; there have been a few replies there.
