  1. The door control system was not reliable and often conductors had to open them at the door control panel for each car at every stop. This meant some cars had doors that did not open. This also meant the locomotive may not recieve the door open/close info. Due that that last point, some crew applied the manual emergency brake once the train stopped to keep it from leaving with open doors and/or crew still on the platform. - A
  2. As far as the MCI replacement i just hope they have a comfier ride than the NABI that replaced the fleible's. And please ditch the CNG forevar. - Andy

  4. I will do a quick scour for PRR era diagrams which are available with a bit of searching, but the EL and CNJ lines will be a lot harder to find.
  5. NJT has 1 if not 2 or more fenced off areas in manhattan that they use to put busses when not being used. I've walked by the one, it's somewhere west of penn station. - A
  6. Rutgers, coach usa, academy. Broadway i believe took over from when public service ceased trolly operation in bayonne, but i could be wrong. - A
  7. The rais are fine, it's the PRR era infrastructure that needs to be overhauled/replaced. - A
  8. That trip should have cost 54 bucks (plus parking?). What people don't get is that the fares are geared towards commuters who usually buy monthly or weekly passes. NJT has to cover budget shortfalls by raising fares and cutting service. If you don't like this vote for people who will increase funding to the point where fares either stabilize, or go down. As for 90 minutes, you must be taking one of those weekend super locals. Anyone going on a trip using transit should know weekend service is going to be a shadow of weekday service. NJTR is a commuter railroad. Before the 25% fare increase the fares were a huge discount on travel to NYC. - A
  9. NJT still runs truncated "clockers", simply between NYP and TRE. The stops after nyp are: newark penn, princeton junction, hamilton, trenton. Peak AM and PM 3900 series trains have these "super-express" trains, and only lose to amtrak due to limitations of 100 mph operating speed. It should be said though, that SEPTA routinely holds for late NJT trains at trenton. NJT often can't wait due to limited slots into new york penn. The 2 services actually connect rather well. All that said, a single seat train with limited stops such as the keystone would be great... if amtrak pulled a shore line east/MARC and allowed transit riders on those trains that would be very cool. I believe they run hourly. - A
  10. The mobile NJT site has had the blue and white design for ages. - A
  11. I have had mixed feelings about NJT contracting service to private lines. In most instances the contract companies do a decent enough job, but it has to be said the red and tans out there need to go. Crap OTP and poor employee attitudes towards the job at hand. When you depend on these drivers to be there on time & act like a fellow human and they don't do that its time for NJT to take over. - A
  12. This explains some interesting driving i observed over the last few months through certain intersections.. - A
