Union City subterranean rail station feasibility

Recommended Posts

Greetings to all,

 

Here's a question regarding a transit dream of mine. I don't know a whole lot about rail infrastructure, but I figure a lot of you do.

 

Would it be feasible at some point in the future for New Jersey Transit to construct a station in what is now the tunnel between Secaucus Junction and New York Penn Station? I'm picturing one that would stop at Bergenline Avenue in Union City.

 

Has anyone proposed this before? I met Metsfan once on a Trenton-bound train and he told me someone had once discussed it with him.

 

Thanks!

Ruby

No, Amtrak owns the line and the last thing they want is a train stopping in the tunnels to pick up and discharge passengers. Could it be done maybe but its never going to happen. Also on weekends one tunnel is closed for work.

Yea, agree with (:P(K), they all ready have enough problems with the tunnels, adding a station would be.... not a real good idea.

Sadly the time of those kind of ideas is passed, all we can do now is rebuid and recover as much of what we lost after ww2.

That's too bad. Maybe some real NYC rail connections for the dense part of northern Hudson County can happen someday in some way. Different time, different economy, different line.
