Any pictures of PATH Subway, during this "Polar Vortex" ?
How overground sections have been working during this period of freezing and snowy weather ?

PATH track map from nycsubway.org:



I'm wonder how will look track configuration at WTC after reconstruction - loop or terminus tracks?

No photos, and I didn't ride the above-ground portions, but it was working fine and without delays even on the coldest days. It didn't snow on the coldest days; snow does occasionally knock out the above-ground portions of the PATH, maybe once every two-three years we'll get a big storm that causes a day-long outage. (The sky was completely clear on the coldest day, which it usually is when the temperatures drop that low.)

Then again, it wasn't *that* cold in the NY area, just about 5 F (-15 C), which, while really cold, isn't so cold as to cause machinery to fail. (The temperatures in the Midwest were much worse.)

Also, on the PATH track map, the WTC station is sort of out of date. The easternmost two tracks have been semi-permanently closed for a very long time (at least four years) during construction. Not sure when they're planned to reopen; presumably some time relatively soon so the western tracks can be closed for construction. Do you know if there are tail tracks or any kind of provision at all in place for the extension to Astor Place? I didn't know that existed.
