Railway Age: Gateway The Series

Recommended Posts

Over the last 3 months, David Alan of Railway Age has come up with a 6-part installment dealing with Gateway. It is a very interesting read, and it deals with things that railfans aren't usually concerned with, such as funding.

It looks like Gateway indeed is a really big waste, and the inefficiency problems that plague the MTA rear their heads with NJT and Amtrak.

 

 

Anyone connected with the series of passenger rail projects in the New York/New Jersey Metropolitan Area known collectively as Gateway will claim that their eventual completion is inevitable, much like former California Gov. Jerry Brown claimed that completion of the virtually defunct California High-Speed Rail Project was inevitable, or how anti-rail activists like Randal O’Toole claim that the impending demise of passenger trains and rail transit is inevitable. Yet, circumstances have changed in recent years, and new discoveries have led some advocates in the region to doubt the cost-effectiveness, and even the feasibility, of building Gateway as currently proposed.
