Beware if you say that New Jersey is part of New York City, you will be killed by some here.  :D

Nice pictures and you even managed to take a picture in the PATH.

Those train signals that are identical to ordinary pedestrian signals are neat. This is Jersey City, right?

 

I recall they're common to see there at certain locations.

Wow. The switches are just a drop from the platform. This is hard to find in the NYC subway, but seem to be common for railroads like LIRR. I'd imagine a train coming in from the straight track segment would have to keep doors in the rear closed.

This is an interesting setup with the switch on the repost on mtattrains pic by Censin.

 

Great shots mtattrain. I owe you one on the up-vote, ran out on my quota limit, I'll get back to you on this one. +1.

Nice shots, again! How is the Newark City Subway.

 

The Newark Light Rail is quite nice, especially the Broad Street Extension section, but the original route (not Broad Street) has a shitload of speed reducers...

This is the only station on PATH that is like this, they don't have to worry about the doors opening on the wrong track and having a huge gap since:

1) Trains normally only come towards that switch from the other end of the station, so there's no worry about the back of the train (I believe they might single track over there in the opposite direction, I have had it happen once, though its the same thing from the normal direction (see 2 to clarify)

2) The track that goes towards the platform has 8-car trains, therefore it still reaches the end of the platform but stays next to the platform. The track that goes the other way has 7-car trains, and the front of the train only goes as far as before the switch starts.

 

I have never seen this before in the NYC subway, It is very common on railroads (They have some smack in the middle of the station at Penn Station), Im guessing they did this here on PATH due to space issues (If they split a bit farther up, the tunnel curve would be too tight, something like that).
