Train derails between Greenwich, Cos Cob stations
Staff Report
Published: 10:52 p.m., Tuesday, February 1, 2011

A Metro-North Railroad train out of New York's Grand Central Station derailed Tuesday night between the Greenwich and Cos Cob stations, rail officials said, forcing hundreds of passengers to wait for hours on the disabled train and delaying rail traffic along the busy route.

There are no reported injuries, Metro-North spokesman Aaron Donovan said.

Five hundred to 600 passengers were aboard the train at the time of the derailment, Donovan said. As of 10:20 p.m., all passengers had been transferred to an empty, non-commuter train that was to bring them on to their destinations.

The train, the first post-rush hour one to leave New York at 8:07 p.m. and scheduled to arrive in New Haven just before 10 p.m., came off the tracks at 8:55 p.m. at a switch, causing all four tracks to go out of service. Five or six other trains were delayed due to the bottleneck and trains along the New Haven line are running with a half-hour to an hour of scattered delays.

One track has since been opened to rail traffic.

"Trains are on the move," Donovan said around 10:20 p.m. "They're restored service to that one track."

Though the delayed trains are moving and the passengers have moved on, the derailed train remains disabled, Donovan said. A wrecker crew out of White Plains, N.Y., is en route to the scene to restore the trains to the tracks, he said.

Donovan couldn't say how long the restoration would take.

"(The derailment) will certainly affect service into the overnight hours, but I can't say if it will impact the morning rush," he said. "There may be some residual work overnight."

Icy conditions gripped the region Tuesday and will worsen overnight as another round of frozen precipitation bears down. It's too early to say, though, if weather played a role in the derailment, Donovan said.

"We'll certainly put this under investigation," he said.

The incident comes as Metro-North is under increasing pressure to repair the New Haven Line's fleet of aging railcars, which have exposed electrical components that are particularly sensitive to drifting snow.

Earlier Tuesday, Metro-North President Howard Permut said that, across the board, the New Haven line's fleet of 320 M-2, M-4, and M-6 cars are all in "terrible shape," and he anticipated the railroad only being able to keep between 50 and 60 percent of the cars reliably during the continuing harsh weather.

Fewer trains in service has led to overcrowding up and down the New Haven line.

Metro-North Cuts Service on the New Haven Line
By MICHAEL M. GRYNBAUM
Published: February 1, 2011

With half of their fleet on the New Haven line knocked out by weather-related repairs, Metro-North Railroad officials said Tuesday that they could no longer run regular weekday service on that branch for the indefinite future.

In an unusual move, the railroad will create an alternative timetable that greatly reduces the number of trains running on weekdays.

The schedule, to take effect on Monday, better reflects the railroad’s current capacity on the New Haven line.

The revised schedule — offering more frequent service than on weekends but less than a typical weekday — is expected to stay in effect indefinitely, at least until engineers can muddle through a steep backlog of repairs on the railroad’s aging, exhausted fleet.

“We are not able to run a stable operation on the New Haven Line,” said Howard Permut, the railroad’s president. “The trains are overcrowded, and the trains are so unreliable coming into the Bronx that they are now delaying Harlem and Hudson trains.”

For weeks, the line’s 67,000 riders, who hail from commuter enclaves like Greenwich, Conn., and Larchmont, N.Y., have had to squeeze into rail cars with barely enough room to stand. Many trains are too packed to board at all. Delays and cancellations are commonplace, and confused crowds have mobbed Grand Central Terminal at rush hour, trying to decipher train schedules that seem to have run amok.

“This is a significant step which we almost never do,” Mr. Permut said of the new schedule, which is still being drawn up. “We’ve never had this amount of cars out of service.”

Nearly half of all New Haven line trains have been relegated to repair yards for problems like frozen brakes, broken motors and malfunctioning doors, and Mr. Permut described the railroad’s facilities as “inadequate” to handle the needed maintenance.

Most of the trains were built in the 1970s, and their electronic systems have proved ill equipped to handle the storms and icy weather affecting the region. High-tech replacement cars have been delayed for years because of manufacturing problems and a lack of financial support from the Connecticut government, which covers part of the costs for the line.

The new timetable will not affect schedules on the Harlem and Hudson lines.

Many riders on Metro-North, the top-performing commuter railroad in the country, are unaccustomed to such indignities, and the problems seem to have left passengers jaded. Last week, a YouTube video surfaced of a train from New Canaan rollicking along the elevated tracks in Harlem with a door wide open. Nonchalant passengers, standing inches away from the void, simply laughed.

Chris Schoenfeld, a commuter from Greenwich who runs StationStops, a blog about Metro-North, described a chaotic scene that he witnessed at Grand Central last week. At the peak of the evening rush, the station’s billboard-size information screens went blank, and railroad staffers “had no idea whatsoever what was going on,” he wrote in an e-mail.

“Confused riders crowded schedule display screens waiting for something to appear,” he continued.

On Monday, Mr. Schoenfeld squeezed onto a 8:27 a.m. local from Cos Cob, Conn., to New York. He described the ride as “the most crowded train I have ever ridden on Metro-North.”

“We shoehorned people on and off for four stops,” Mr. Schoenfeld said, “but by the time we got to New Rochelle, it was impossible to fit anyone else.”

Metro-North woes derail Waterbury line
Track change: Buses to replace trains now needed on railroad's main route
Anne M. Amato, Staff Writer
Published: 10:14 p.m., Friday, February 4, 2011

Malisa Slaughter arrives at the Waterbury train station every day just before 9 a.m. to catch the 9:15 train to Bridgeport, where she works.

There's no terminal there, so Slaughter and her fellow passengers wait outside on a platform exposed to the elements, including snow, sleet and ice storms.

Most times the train arrives. Sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes, the train is replaced by a bus. In fact, that's been the case a number of times this year, she said.

"It can be a hassle, not knowing if the train is coming, if it's on time or if we have to take a bus," she said. "The worst part is not knowing what's going on."

Margarita Pinto takes the same train as Slaughter, which arrives at 10:07 a.m. in Bridgeport.

"It can be frustrating sometimes," she said. "We depend on the train. For a lot of us, it's our only means of transportation."

Wilma Otero would agree. She takes the Waterbury train to Bridgeport, then transfers to a New York City-bound train. "It's definitely a challenge getting to work in the city," she said. "I have to take two trains to get there and sometimes, when they replace the train with a bus, I can miss my connection. That's when I really get upset."

Otero and other passengers are about to get even more upset because on Saturday, Metro-North will suspend all Waterbury line train service indefinitely. Bus service will follow the train schedule, making stops in seven towns. The buses will come from CTTransit, which operates bus service around the state.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said the Waterbury train suspension will free up two seven-car, diesel-powered trains that can be put into service on the New Haven Line. With each car carrying about 100 people, the action will make about 1,400 additional seats available.

"This brutal and punishing winter has meant unprecedented breakdowns on the New Haven Line, and anything we can do to supplement service, we will do," Malloy said.

The move was yet another cutback to the Waterbury branch line that runs from Waterbury to Bridgeport, where it connects with the New Haven Line. There are stops in between at Naugatuck, Beacon Falls, Seymour, Ansonia, Derby/Shelton and Stratford. The line was shut down throughout the summer of 2009 when there was a major track upgrade.

Last year, there were 4,880 scheduled train runs on the Waterbury line. Of that number, 67 scheduled trains were substituted with buses, according to Aaron Donovan, Metro-North spokesman. So far this year, and just during January, 92 of the 395 scheduled trains were substituted with buses, he said. "That's 23.3 percent," he said, adding the severe winter weather is to blame.

Donovan said two diesel trains are "dedicated for use on the Waterbury line" and are often taken off that line for use on the New Haven Line when electric trains need repairs.

"The electric cars were designed in a manner that made key components extremely vulnerable to snow," said Howard Permut, Metro-North president, in a recent memo explaining the chaos this winter's weather has caused his rail line. Problems have included brakes that freeze in extreme cold and doors that won't close properly because of snow and ice.

Another problem is age, he said, adding almost 70 percent of the electric fleet is more than 40 years old. "The situation is dire," Permut said. "On a daily basis, there are close to 150 cars -- or 40 percent -- out of service on the New Haven Line."

Although the additional diesel trains may help, the engines have their own problems.

A train out of Grand Central Terminal was forced to stop for about 25 minutes around 5 p.m. Friday in Greenwich after its diesel engine began to heat up, said Donovan, the railroad spokesman. He didn't know if the train was from the Waterbury line. "It's part of the same fleet, but they are constantly being rotated," Donovan said. The train was restarted shortly before 5:30 p.m. and continued east.

Donovan said that, statistically, it makes more sense to use the Waterbury diesel trains on the New Haven Line. "On any given day, only about 400 people ride the Waterbury line, while that train could serve about 5,000 on the New Haven Line," he said.

"We are doing the same thing with diesels on the Harlem and Hudson lines," he added. "It's a matter of putting resources where it would do the most good."

Yet for Waterbury rail riders, it means it's back to boarding buses.

"Sometimes you just need to bear with it," said Otero. "It's just one more challenge we face in the winter."

The anchorwoman on the right is Sonia Baghdady. It's really hard to pay attention when she's on the air. I get distracted for some reason. I'm not sure why.

The Stamford streetcar plan was a Malloy thing that never had any chance of success and went out the window when he became governor.

There was never an actual plan for a New Haven streetcar. It is just a map that Yonah Freemark fantasized for his site (www.thetransportpolitic.com). A streetcar imagined by a blog - that's all there is to say about that.

GBT planning service cuts, changes
John Burgeson, Staff Writer
Published 01:40 p.m., Saturday, August 20, 2011

Greater Bridgeport Transit is considering several service changes, one of which would eliminate Bus 18, which serves Trumbull, as well as cutting the bus that serves the Trumbull Corporate Park.

Other changes would involve routes 5, 10 and 16.

"The changes are being planned to ensure buses operate on time and to provide access to new locations, but they also will reduce services in some areas," said Doug Holcomb, the planning and service development officer for the transit system.

"With the last round of changes, riders had alternatives, but this time some riders will be affected," he said.

Holcomb said the cuts are largely because of reductions in Federal Transportation Administration grants. "In the case of Route 18, there was a significant reduction in that grant," he said.

Route 18 now serves Trumbull Center, the Westfield Trumbull Shopping Mall and the Hawley Lane Mall. Holcomb said that only a few dozen riders per day use that bus.

Another major change would involve Bus 5, which travels from downtown to the center of Bridgeport's Black Rock section. GBT wants to extend this service to the new Fairfield Metro railroad station on weekdays once it opens and also change the peak-period frequency interval from 20 to 30 minutes.

The new station is expected to open in late October or early November, officials say. GBT officials say that Bus 5 will begin serving the new station within a few days of its opening.

The proposed No. 5 route includes travel on Black Rock Turnpike onto the train station access road and into the new parking lot, picking up and dropping off passengers along the train platforms.

Other proposals include:

Route 10 service from Fairfield Woods Road to downtown Stratford: The change would move the Stratford end of the service from its turn-around at Main Street and Barnum Avenue to Beardsley Avenue and West Broad Street. Riders continuing could transfer to the Coastal Link and Routes 16 and 23 at this location.

Route 16: GBT proposes to end morning and afternoon peak service to the Trumbull Corporate Park. In addition, service to East Main Street, north of Wilcoxson Avenue, and Main Street, north of Paradise Green, would be discontinued with the bus being re-routed onto Wilcoxson Avenue. Route 16 would continue to provide local service to Stratford's major shopping areas including Hawley Lane mall, Stratford Crossing, Stratford Square, Paradise Green and the Dock Shopping Center.

The GBT staff will be at the following locations and times to discuss these changes. These will take place as follows:

Sept. 20, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Trumbull Town Hall Council Chambers, 5866 Main Street.

Sept. 21, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Stratford Town Hall council chambers, 2725 Main St.

Sept. 22, from noon to 1 p.m. at the Bridgeport Towers community room 199 Yacht St.

There will also be a public hearing on Sept. 27, from 6 to 7 p.m. in the GBT Bus Station, 710 Water St. Bridgeport, second floor community room.

Also, riders can email comments to [email protected], or mail comments to: Greater Bridgeport Transit, Planning and Service Development One Cross Street, Bridgeport, CT 06610.

Comments should be sent prior to Sept. 27.

GBT has an annual operating budget of about $17 million and 55 buses, of which a maximum of 45 operate at any given time. The fare is $1.75.

Quote:
Production Progress
• The first M8 pair of rail cars manufactured in Lincoln, Nebraska has
arrived in New Haven on August 27, 2011. Kawasaki will prepare this pair
for the testing phase before being accepted for revenue service. This is
the first delivery of what is expected to be a total of 367 M8 rail cars to be
manufactured in Lincoln, Nebraska.
• There are 4 M8s remaining to be shipped from Japan. The two pairs of
M8s are currently scheduled for delivery late October/early November.
• The expectation is that there will be approximately 60 M-8 cars in service
by the end of 2011.

Trainloads of Problems for Fairfield Project

Quote:
FAIRFIELD, Conn.—In the late 1990s, town officials here announced plans for a 30-acre commercial, retail and transportation complex, including a Hilton hotel bounded by a waterfront nature preserve. More than a decade later, the site is empty albeit for a graffiti-covered concrete train platform overlooking piles of about 20,000 tons of dirt.



BlackRock Realty
The Fairfield Metro project, in rendering, included plans for a train station, commercial space and a hotel.

The Fairfield Metro complex project—heralded as a centerpiece of the town's economic revitalization plan and a boon to the state's aging transportation system—has been fraught with bureaucratic infighting and financial mismanagement, according to a new report by an independent auditor and the town's finance committee.

BUMP

DOT: 'We Are Full-Speed Ahead On The Busway'

http://articles.courant.com/2012-04-...busway-funding

Frankly I think this busway plan will be relatively useless. New Britain is only around 20 minutes from Hartford via car if traffic cooperates (which it usually does). It also seems kind of retrograde to go for a bus...I hate to sound cliche but buses are not cool.

Would prefer the money to be spent on bringing commuter rail to Hartford to connect to the Metro North lines in New Haven and Waterbury.
