On that note any hope for re-electrification, between Cedar Grove and Denville on the Montclair-Boonton Branch

I don't think there's enough Ridership or trains to justify that.

Port Authority chairman pledges to back Amtrak’s Hudson River tunnel project

MAY 7, 2015, 7:22 PM LAST UPDATED: THURSDAY, MAY 7, 2015, 11:12 PM
BY CHRISTOPHER MAAG

The Port Authority will “step up to the plate” to help design, fund and build new train tunnels under the Hudson River, its chairman said Thursday, a sudden change in policy for the bi-state agency, which has not included funding for the massive project in its 10-year, $25 billion capital plan.

The shift by the Port Authority comes as Amtrak continues to work on the tunnel project, known as Gateway. Already, the federally chartered company has built the foundation for a new tunnel between 10th and 11th avenues on the West Side of Manhattan at a cost of $185 million. Now, phase two, to extend that effort west of 11th Avenue, is under way, said Amtrak board Chairman Anthony Coscia on Thursday.

“People are talking about Gateway as though it’s a future project. It’s not,” Coscia said. “We can’t wait for a starting gun. We’re moving ahead now.”

So the Port Authority hosted a Summit on Tran-Hudson Capacity solutions here is a Link to the page, and the Slide shows by the PA, MTA, NJT, Amtrak and the RPA are at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!

New Bridge Landing down the Road will be upgraded to include 2 tracks , high level platforms and large scale TOD development. The hold up seems to be over the parking garage size and NJT which wants a huge parking garage while the Town wants a smaller one. You would think they would learn from there mistakes with large parking garages at Mount Arlington & Ramsey-Route 17 which are both underused. Even though these TOD Projects would be mixed use including Retail & Office space , i'm not sure given great transit connections that a large garage is needed. It seems both the town & developers don't want it or see the need for it... It wouldn't surprise me if NJT is holding up other suburban TOD projects with similar demands...

No Charges for Engineer in 2013 Fatal Metro-North Derailment
By BENJAMIN MUELLERMAY 14, 2015

The Bronx district attorney’s office said on Thursday that it would not file charges against the engineer who fell asleep at the switch of a Metro-North Railroad train in 2013, causing the train to hurtle off the rails in an accident that left four people dead.

The engineer, William Rockefeller, who was later found to have obstructive sleep apnea, nodded off as the train approached one of the sharpest curves in the region’s rail system at 82 miles per hour. The speed limit through the curve was 30 m.p.h.

What should be done to run MNRR New Heaven Line to run through Penn Station?
And last but not least question - are there any plans to extend tracks from Grand Central to the east?
There's some push-back for a "West Side Access" project to bring Metro North to Penn, yes.

As for a direct connection between the two, none that I've ever heard of. It would be a bit complicated; though, I wonder if they could manage it by crossing the river and allowing trains to switch over somewhere in Queens and crossing back.

Not the best solution, but cheaper than tunneling through Manhattan.

But, yeah, especially with Space X and company arriving on the scene its getting pretty cheap to be space, but more expensive to be under Manhattan.

Metropark was built by Penn Central as a park-and-ride station for Metroliner service, right?

Jersey Avenue was built by Pennsylvania Railroad, in 1963.

The other NEC station built by Penn Central for Metroliner was Capital Beltway, near Washington D.C. But, this station was abandoned by Amtrak in 1983.

Why don't the DPL-45 engineers always use overhead power when they haven't available to them
