MNRR West-of-Hudson fleet

Recommended Posts

From what I understand, Metro-North has a general leasing/operating agreement with New Jersey Transit.  But I was wondering, are there or have there ever been any circumstances under which the MNRR F-40s would be needed or used in East-of-Hudson territory? Or is that equipment basically meant to spend the rest of it's service life running to Port Jervis and such?

Those trains are designed differently. Some of the stations don't have a platform edge and allow exits all the way to the ground. If you used them east of the Hudson the entryway would be sixteen inches too high.
