Cost of new train station triples to $146 million

That means building center island platforms, rather than just side platforms, to help juggle trains traveling at different speeds to different destinations and avoid bottlenecks.

East Side Access

Today MTA Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) is the country’s largest commuter railroad. Its increasing daily passenger load totals 270,000 travelers –230,000 using Penn Station. By bringing riders into Grand Central Terminal, the East Side Access Project will allow the LIRR to expand capacity to Manhattan and keep up with growing demand.

That's too remote. The North River tunnels have only 20 years left in them and there are no serious plans to replace them.

The tunnels are too expensive to be replaced. They can be properly maintained. It's good to have a pair of parallel tunnels though.

Nexis, this is truly great news.

All M8 trains have been delivered and placed into service.

http://web.mta.info/mnr/html/newM8.html

Quote:
M8s In Service

With the conditional acceptance of the 25 M8 single cars, the M4 and M6 triplets have been removed from train service.

The M8 trains operate during all service periods between New Haven, Stamford and Grand Central Terminal.

Three 8-car M2 consists will be kept available for service and will operate on an exception-only basis, should the need arise.
