We're excited to share the story of LIRR train conductor Brian D, who was working the 10:40 AM train from Ronkonkoma to Penn Station on Sunday, February 26.

As the train left Wyandanch, a 60 year old woman ran toward him signaling that she was choking. Brian tried slapping her on the back a few times but was unsuccessful. He then performed the Heimlich Maneuver, which successfully dislodged the Granny Smith apple stuck in her throat.

The entire car gave him a standing ovation. Way to go Brian!

Some NJ Transit trains smell like a barnyard, and here's why


By Larry Higgs | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
on April 07, 2015 at 12:55 PM, updated April 07, 2015 at 3:29 PM

What's that smell? In this case, it was an odor better suited to a farm rather than a commuter train.

NJ Transit officials admitted that their trains parked in Morrisville, Pa., are leaving the yard with something extra - the odor from a nearby mulch factory.

The stinky secret was revealed by an NJ Transit customer service representative who replied to commuter Jen Levins official complaint reporting a "horrible smell" on her commuter train on April 2.

Personally, I always liked the vertical lights. I find them reminiscent of the previous generations of New Haven rolling stock, such as the DL-109s, and the like. It struck me as being retro without being over-the-top.
