LIRR Cannonball train operates only at Friday and during Summer months. Is It possible to turn this train to all-year, rush-only express service?

I'm not sure it be worth it , due to low ridership east of Patchogue... The Average Station usage drops to 100 people or less east of that. They do other express service during rush up to Patchogue...and few stations east of it...but its one or 2 trains... Not hourly express service like the Babylon gets all day...

Another soccer mom took the SUV out on a spin on the third rail, this time on Long Island. Thankfully no fire and no fatalities this time around.

Metro North M7A Overshoots Platform & Reverses (Hudson Line)



Quote:
Due to the sudden/unexpected slippery conditions caused by a flash storm, a northbound Hudson Local consisting of M7A railcars overshot the platform while attempting to make a station stop at Scarborough. District C (Lower Hudson Line RTC) was called and a reverse move was made so that all open cars were on the platform. (Taken 9/9/15)

Anyone know how many level crossings are on the 3 main systems? Or at least the trunk routes?

Well I can tell you the sections that are grade separated...

Fully Grade Separated

-New Haven Line (MNRR)
-Atlantic Branch (LIRR)
-Babylon Branch (LIRR)
-Northeast Corridor (NJT)

As for the amount of crossings per line , I would have to count them. Some only have one like the Port Washington Branch in Little Neck. Others have 2 or 3 per town...

As a follow up question:
Are there any plans to grade separate more crossings?

Business leaders call for better rail service to NYC

By Keila Torres Ocasio Published 1:43 pm, Thursday, September 10, 2015

STAMFORD — Could improving the state’s rail system lead to economic growth?

That was the question posed Wednesday morning at a panel discussion hosted by members of the business community at the Stamford Marriott.

The event, called “30 minutes to Manhattan: What will it take?,” focused on ways in which improving the area’s connectivity to New York City could help spur economic development in this state.

Not that i'm aware. There are a few dangerous crossings in the region that should be grade separated. But no money has allocated for the projects.

Ya most of the grade separations are very old as in they were built by the NYCRR, and the MTA really hasn't focused on grade separation projects.
