A close up of bad rail at Schwab Road

Recommended Posts

That definitely needs to be fixed! Even the discombobulated MTA would never let something like that slip by.

You would be surprised at how much bad rail is actually out there, that is pretty bad but I can say I have seen alot worse :).

 

Nice video:tup:

I've actually seen trains in action on this line, and they do indeed go fast. I am guessing there was a slow order till it was repaired. When you're in the cab, you can feel the engine bobble around via the seat of your pants or it can be more obvious.

 

It looks like a 4 bolt fishplate with 3 loose bolts and 1 missing bolt. I'm a fan of 6 bolt myself, and the rare 8 bolt.
