I can do it myself as moderator and have been by asked by several forum members to take it down but am asking YOU to rethink what you posted.
I didn't even notice the 'advertisement' because I posted my reply from my phone. Had I noticed, I wouldn't have offered a legitimate reply. The railroad (and any large operation) provides an abundance of material for mockery, however, mocking something as simple as forgetting to put on marker lights, (if it was even forgetful) is scraping the bottom. The lazy comment is uncalled for. The whole post on a forum that is to provide information, and intelligent conversation among those in and interested in the rail industry is inappropriate. If you wish to get insightful replies in future posts, leave the satire on facebook or twitter.
As for the weak M7s, as much a fan of the M3s I am, the construction of the M7 is far superior to the M3. The Had the two recent major wrecks been M3s, I'm almost certain there would have been fatalities.
As for the weird subway style cars. Its well known that the design of the original LI Metropolitans set the design standard of all subsequent classes of NY subway & commuter rail cars for the next 25 years. Check your history, or ask the lazy employees that have pride in their profession.
