Former Erie Midtown Direct?

Recommended Posts

Are there any plans to bring former Erie line trains into New York?   Wouldn't the ALP-45DP make that possible?

Would be nice to see thru New York to Port Jervis train service....

No track connection between Former Erie Main and the NEC at SC Junction.

 

They been talking about building the loop line for years but haven't happen yet, probably won't

Technically, it *could* be done... an eastbound Bergen County Line train, for instance, once departing Secaucus, would use the West End Wye - or switch ends in the Bergen Tunnel to run west on the M&E - out to past Kearny Junction; then switch direction again to join the High Line at Swift.  

So yeah, it could be done - but won't (nor should it, at least at the present time).
