How long will it take to restore this 108 year old very strong system due to the flooding from storm sandy?
  by Backshophoss
It will take days to restore some service,longer for the flooded out sections,done in stages as Con Ed gets power up and running to
the Sub Stations.

There's news that the Army Corps of Engineers is enroute to NYC to help in the pump out of NYCTA system,
The bus side of MTA has started Limited ops at 5:oopm today

The A train route was badly damaged/washed away across Jamaica Bay(ex-LIRR bridge),any idea of a timeline to restore service?
This will need to take weeks,or months to rebuild,after the rest of NYCTA is up and running??
