• MTA 2020-2024 Capital Budget - NYC Metro Area Wide Priorities

  • This forum will be for issues that don't belong specifically to one NYC area transit agency, but several. For instance, intra-MTA proposals or MTA-wide issues, which may involve both Metro-North Railroad (MNRR) and the Long Island Railroad (LIRR). Other intra-agency examples: through running such as the now discontinued MNRR-NJT Meadowlands special. Topics which only concern one operating agency should remain in their respective forums.

Several items.
1. Are the track layouts such that when ESA is complete could there be a NYP - NYG shuttle train ?
2. Flnn's letter to congress 3mentioned that the Pelham draw bridge as a necessary replacement.
3. What source does the poster cite that says that the third track across Hell gate would not be instaled to be restored track 4 ?
4. In fact once there are 4 tracks across Hell gatewhy not have all four have CAT installed and used when CSCX not using ? Amtrak and MNRR coould pay for all maintenance. ? How often does CSX use their present freight track ?
5. The west side line will need 2 MT all the way thru Spuyten.
6. The Spuyten bridge needs a 2 track fly over
7. The flyover needs to intersect the MNRR inside the MNRR tracks 2 and 3 for full access .

On point 7, the through tracks are numbered 4, 2, 1, 3 counting from the river in (that extra one between 4 and the river is 6). Do you mean between 1 and 2? Is there enough room?

CSX runs almost daily over Hellgate(Trash trains),P&W is the other user of the CSX trackage for the stone trains(seasonal)
4th track has become a supply to maintain the CSX freight track .
DV is the point that Hudson Line turns into a 2 track mainline thru the rock cuts to Highbridge.
NO ROOM for flyover at DV believe # 6 track is the lead to Amtrak's Empire connection(aka; w30th st branch)
Amtrak has double tracked most of the line,leaving the DV bridge and he tunnel under the LIRR west side yard as the only single track sections
