NJ Transit officials worry about replacement rail cars.

Recommended Posts

NEWARK — "NJ Transit officials want to ensure that new rail cars aren’t lemons they would be stuck with for decades, as they debate replacing the silver-sided Arrow III rail cars, which are older than the agency itself.


NJ Transit’s board on Oct. 15 postponed approval, for the second time, of a $1.4 million contract with LTK Engineering Services to design a self-propelled version of the agency’s popular multilevel cars for use on the commuter railroad’s electrified lines.


“I’m not in favor of moving forward, because I’m afraid of saddling this agency with something for the next 50 years ... that could be a disaster,” said James Simpson, state transportation commissioner.


The measure prompted an unusual protracted public discussion between Simpson, NJ Transit senior staff and some board members."
