Recommended Posts

Nice! what happened?

 

An OOS train derailed and destroyed some 3rd rail and stuff. It'll probably take a few days.

Meanwhile they cut the 6:25am from Hicksville because of this leaving Westbury with a 45+ gap in service and ALOT of people take that train. They have 2 trains stopping at Hicksville 6:10am and 6:19am God forbid they could stop at Westbury but noooo. When stuff like this happens local trains should not be the ones cut. But that's the genius that is LIRR management, between them and NICE we are so screwed.

Where exactly did this happen?

 

This is what I'm wondering...  Was it east going towards Long Island past Jamaica Station or West past Jamaica station?

 

I ask this because during the derailment of the Amtrak train in one of the tunnels and the problem with one of the tunnels after Sandy MTA's response is the same, cancel trains, jampack Penn Station.

 

Instead of canceling trains out of Penn Station becuase they cannot get into Penn Station wouldn't it be a better Idea to:

A) hold the trains at Jaimaica and have MOST trains coming in and out acting as a shuttle to get as many people out of Penn and have them transfer to waiting trains to Jamaica to continue their commute?

 

B) and/or devert the trains that would be cut to Atlantic Terminal?  Getting to Brooklyn is a lot less of a bitch than dealing the shit at Penn these "hickups" cause.

 

Maybe it's just me but A or B just seems like a better idea than 86'ing trains that are already packed just to sardine people onto other trains.  I swear there is going to be a riot at Penn if these things keep happening.
