I'm looking for the old historic impacts report for replacing Portal Bridge. I can't seem to find it on the website. Does anyone know where I can get it?

Utilized by Metro-North Commuter Railroad and Amtrak, the captivating sights on the New York-New Haven line are many, perhaps none more so than the four ConnDOT-owned GE Genesis P32-AC-DM diesels that wear the famous livery of the New Haven Railroad. At Stamford, Connecticut, MNCR 229 is pushing hard on a morning commuter train bound for New York’s Grand Central Terminal. All photos by Gary Dolzall. - See more at: http://www.engine-driver.com/article....0FTb4EVU.dpuf



The domination of electric mu’s notwithstanding, diesel-hauled trains have always played an important role on MNCR lines, and for many years the face of MNCR dieseldom was that of the classic ex-New Haven EMD FL9s. That began to change dramatically in 1995 with the arrival of the first GE “Genesis” P32AC-DMs, little sisters to the P42DCs used by Amtrak nationwide (see the Engine Driver story, “A Stylish Standard Bearer”). The queens of the P32 fleet are four units (MNCR 228-231) owned by ConnDOT and that, like the ConnDOT-owned FL9s before them, wear a New Haven Railroad heritage livery. A recent (2008) and highly unique addition to the Metro-North diesel fleet is the Brookville Equipment Corporation-built BL20GH. Of the 12 such units operated by MNCR, half are painted in Metro-North livery and half in a New Haven Railroad retro scheme. On MNCR’s New Haven Line, diesels – which haul Bombardier-built Shoreliner push-pull cars – are typically assigned to trains that originate on the branches but also often serve portions of the main line, most notably the P32s that haul through-trains from Danbury all the way to and from New York Grand Central Terminal. Shore Line East brings further diesel diversity to the New Haven line, including a fleet of ex-Amtrak GE Genesis diesels. - See more at: http://www.engine-driver.com/article....0FTb4EVU.dpuf

Today, a dump truck got into an accident on I-80 and the container almost fell onto the NJ Transit Morris & Essex line below, although this is a lightly used stretch in Lake Hopatcong and not on the mainline east of Dover.

Metro-North's New Haven Line Breaks Ridership Record

NEW HAVEN — With a 1.6 percent gain over 2013, Metro-North's New Haven line carried more riders in 2014 than in any year of its history, the railroad reported Monday.

Fairfield County riders going to Manhattan jobs are still the largest single piece of the customer base, but the growth is coming from Connecticut and Westchester County, N.Y., workers commuting to jobs in Stamford, Norwalk and Greenwich, along with off-peak riders to New York City.

Isn't that a little overblown? I mean, is about 1000 people seated and 500 without seats really that crowded for a transit train at rush hour in a large urban area? If it was unsafe for a train this crowded to depart then the entire subway system of most cities would grind to a halt. So why so unsafe for commuter rail?

Its not your typical commuter train. Its an express service that runs 110miles with only a few stops.... The real question is why the LIRR is over selling the train....
