10/23/09 Slippery Rails Slow Down Traffic

R44 5278

Recommended Posts

Slippery rails were reported on all lines and therefore are currently slowing down all lines by a few minutes.


Also, Midtown Direct 6632 to Dover is half-an-hour late and not 6 minutes late as indicated on the NJT site. My mom is currently on 6632 and she said it is crawling as there were some mechanical problems earlier in addition to the slippery rails.

When accelerating & braking they can loose adhesion and slide. Uneven traction at speed can cause the automatic braking system to kick in reducing speed.

Not only that, but at some lines where foliage comes onto the tracks.
