Oh brother. Does the MTA have the money to replace those defective trains? I mean if breakdowns like that happen often, it needs better rail cars are needed soon.

It was a simple derailment , so I'm sure all they'll need to do is some basic maintenance..

That's something that confuses me. They are putting up a LOT of new poles along the New Haven Line, but they are leaving the old poles up as well. Are the old poles coming down at some point? The old portals are now 100 years old, and undoubtedly quite worn out. What is the time-frame for finishing the current overhaul of the New Haven Line (bridges, tracks, wires)?
