Those NJ transit bi-levels look just like the LIRR Kawasaki C3 models.Who manufactured The NJT version

 

They are totally different actually, much roomier inside, better HVAC, lighting etc. Bombardier is making them, they are for the most part replacing the comet 2-4 (with comet 1 basically not used anymore). These are by far my favorite railcars to ride, very comfy, modern, fresh. The C3 bilevels are very square and not streamlined, and have a speed limit of 90 mph if memory serves. The MLV (Multi-Level Vehicle) cars are beefier and have a speed limit of 110. They are "hardcore" high iron comfort modern rolling stock. Amtrak used a set powered by an ALP-46 for NY-DC-NY extra service for Obama's inauguration.

 

Funny anecdote, i was booked on it coming home from DC, it left a minute before i got to the door to the trainshed at union station.. amtrak employee said it was standing room only! :eek:

MLV are made in Barre, VT i believe. Brought down here on manifest trains to MMC in Kerney, NJ. The bilevel cars (used on metrolink, GO) are built in Fort William, ON. The C3's i believe were built in Kawasaki's Yonkers plant.

 

There isn't a NJT version, they were built from the wheels up for NJT, AMT in canada uses them too. C3 were built for LIRR, i am unaware of any other system that use the C3.

Bomb is in good standing with (NJT) to make replacements for the arrow 3's though i personally want brookville to build them. I don't think kawasaki will be in for bidding, because their forte is really not the "hardcore" stuff amtk and (NJT) use, though i would recommend them for light rail or tram etc for the old CRRNJ row. Alstom kinda blew it, i don't think they are in the running for any more power, though i can see them partnering with bomb, with alstom following bomb's lead, and i can see alstom making future single level cars, (sans flippy seats:cool:), but (NJT) looks like it's going to be mostly MLV and EMU into the future.

The Multilevel is its own type of car sold separately to the Bi-Level car design. The Bilevel is built for the more common outside of the North East Low-Level Platform while the Multilevel is built for High Level Platforms as well as low and also there is the clerance issue in and out of NYP where it can go through both tunnels while the LIRR car cannot.

I'm surprised that Bombardier is making such efficient rail equipment for NJT, while bombing those for the MTA. Since Alstom blew it with the PL42ACs, I'm definitely rooting for Siemens to give it a shot for the Arrow IVs!

Did you like West Side Ave line? That is the newer CNJ main line from the west to Communipaw terminal. The line down to 22nd st is the old main line from when the main terminal was at elizabethport. There used to be a substantial station at 8th st in Bayonne, location in the 70's of the Cranford Shuttle. Locally known as the "Scoot", this train, typically one RDC-2, would shuffle passengers from 8th ave in Bayonne to Elizabeth, and Cranford stations after the Aldene plan was implemented, cutting off Communipaw, and using NWK as the terminus for service to Phillipsburg, then High Bridge. It was at this time that Reading closed up shop, leaving the west trenton line in the hands of conrail, Reading RR often ran RDC up the west trenton line from its terminal in central philadelphia, crossing the newark bay rail bridge, up the peninsula to communipaw terminal. This was the only way Reading could compete with the PRR in the philadelphia-new york market, and at the same time made sense for CNJ, because it could connect people from down in my area to people up in scranton via new jersey. Lot of history along the HBLR right of way. Soon there will be a new station at 8th street, and possibly one day across newark bay again.
