I haven't been great at keeping up with the Index, but the New York Subway thread is listed there.

So these extensions to EWR and Elizabeth, are they approved? And are they light rail or PATH?

The EWR extension should be built by the end this decade and the other extensions are in planning. Originally LRT , now it looks like the PATH. Which would better suit the line anyway.

I'm not a fan of this system. It's very dirty and looks really crapy, both trains and stations. It needs refurbishment and new extensions.
The only 'nice' (sort of) detail is the Exchange Place stn.

last pic is of Subway station not PATH.
The whole system needs to be refurbished, however there is no money. They - NJ governor just stopped another big project NJ/NY railway tunnel for NjTransit/Amtrak.

Actually there upgrading as we speak the PA raised the Tolls to pay for the upgrades. New Signals ,most of the stations have been redone. Except in Manhattan and Harrison.

I'd like to see a heavy rail PATH line up Broadway in Bayonne, onto JFK Blvd., up Central Av. and then Bergenline Av. up to Cliffside Park. This would serve the very densely populated communities of North Bergen, Weehawken, Union City, Guttenberg, and West New Yor, which are served by the HBLR, but not along major avenues in the densest parts of the communities and really only on the fringes of the densest areas. The line would also serve densely populated areas in West JC along JFK Blvd. that are underserved by PATH and the HBLR. There is certainly demand along this very dense corridor for a heavy rail line, which would connect to PATH at Journal Sq. and HBLR in Bayonne and at Bergenline in WNY.

Oh....how we all wish that would happen , but i doubt due to costs that it would. Maybe an Elevated line running form Bayonne to Journal SQ.

I am somehow curious to see if the PATH track can support your regular NYC Transit cars and vice versa...

PATH trains are smaller then the NYC Transit trains and so are the tunnels so it wouldn't work.
