We've gotten off of the electrification issue. Yes, the Genesis is the best investment made, and it was probably dumb luck......
Hudson electrification. I'm against it. Surprised?
A third rail is dangerous. Electric equipment can't get through standing water like a diesel can. Electrics have more problems in snow than diesels. In a power failure, you can't budge an electric, but you can push the hulk with a diesel. Diesels rule in the post steam era.
OK, let's put juice on the Division.
Third rail, or catenary? There was talk in 78 about putting up catenary on the Harlem instead of that cursed third rail. What do you guys think??
