P3F 903 Posted January 8, 2022 Share #26 Posted January 8, 2022 (edited) 2 hours ago, Lex said: Personally, I'd have three tracks along at least 70% of the alignment and mandate all freight operations to use electric locomotives. The third track would be used primarily for daytime freight operations, but a select number of stations would come with island platforms as a backup for passenger service. (Naturally, daytime freight trains would be on the shorter end in order to reduce the odds of conflicts.) For the parts of the ROW with four trackways, they could use the northernmost one for freight trains, second to north for westbound trains, second to south for island platforms, and the southernmost track for eastbound trains. At least that would line up with the pre-existing abandoned island platform at East New York. Edited January 8, 2022 by P3F 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
