Disabled train delays LIRR's main line service

And the worst.

 

The scenario Wednesday morning is proving that true.

Is it just me or does the LIRR have issues week after week. NJ Transit shares its tracks (on the NEC) and they still have a better track record than the LIRR.

Well, thing is about NJT and the NEC line is that Amtrak maintains it. Key thing NJT does is schedule management to avoid being delayed by Amtrak.

 

now about LIRR, there are too many faults throughout the system that causes it to go FUBAR so much. Schedule management is fine but maintaining the lines is sort of a problem for them. But they have problems that will just always be there and screw them in the end.

The LIRR is just too damn busy for its own good. I belive most of their problems are their locomotives and signaling.
