New york city rail stations,mth ho subway,christmas train cars,model trains jacksonville fl - For Begninners

In a two-part series on The Transport Politic, I previously argued that to improve Greater New York’s commuter rail service, the agencies controlling it should orient their capital plan to emphasize good service on existing lines instead of spending on outbound extensions, with a special focus on through-routing. In the six months since my articles were published, I have continued to refine some of the points in the proposal. The basic premise of the plan remains the same, and almost the entire map of the proposal and most of the details I gave in the previous posts could stay the same.
All proposed improvements here have a unified theme, which is that New York regional rail should look more like the RER or an S-Bahn. The proposed Fulton Street station, where Yellow, Orange, and Blue lines will meet, should be converted to cross-platform operation. In addition, if possible, the underground Hoboken station for trains to Fulton should be at the same level as PATH, with cross-platform transfers. The other transfers in the proposal—Secaucus, Tonelle, Jamaica, and Sunnyside—either are already cross-platform or cannot be converted. At Secaucus and Tonnelle, the cruciform two-level transfers between the trains to Penn Station and those to Hoboken cannot be converted to cross-platform, but can simplified by tearing down or not building faregates. Finally, three additional infill stops should be considered, two in New Jersey and one in Brooklyn.
The above-described change in the Fulton Street station layout suggests a second route for the Hoboken-Fulton segment (Yellow and Orange Lines) through Manhattan. This option reduces the amount of necessary construction in Lower Manhattan, as well as the total route-length of tunnel to be built, which correspondingly lowers costs.
At the same time, I am no longer convinced by some of the outbound extensions I had previously proposed. On the other hand, there should be more double-tracking of single-track bottlenecks, such as the single-track bridge over the Hackensack over the Erie Main Line, which is otherwise fully double-tracked. At least according to the comments on my posts, the most controversial idea I suggested was the tunnel from Staten Island to Manhattan. In either case, it might be useful if expensive to extend the proposed Staten Island lines west to meet New Jersey Transit. While through-routing is enough to eliminate the capacity problems resulting from Penn Station’s limited track space, there remains the serious issue of pedestrian capacity.
There are multiple solutions to the circulation of pedestrians at Penn Station besides the new connections and stations proposed in my plan.
In addition, today’s station has 11 island platforms, each flanked by two tracks, with only one track adjacent to two platforms. For reference, with four tracks to the east and six to the west (four to New Jersey, two through an upgraded Empire Connection), Penn would not need more than six to eight through-tracks; it would run out of access tunnel capacity before it would run out of station track capacity. Finally, the concourses should be stripped of back offices immediately, and space-consuming concessions should be eliminated as traffic increases. By making timetables easier to remember, clockface scheduling makes travel easier for passengers, increasing ridership. Best industry practice is in Germany, where the S-Bahn not only maintains clockface scheduling, but also rationalizes the additional rush hour service.
Even today, New York has the track capacity to maintain clockface schedules with regular intervals on each line.
On New York’s commuter rail systems, as on the RER, not all trains stop at all stations. A better way of treating diagonal trips would be to require all or most trains to stop at stations located such before splits, as far as track arrangement permits. No system mainline should have less than two trains per hour at any hour of operation; ideally, the minimum frequency should be three trains per hour. None of this applies to peak hour, when there is enough demand to permit one-seat rides to Manhattan from every branch. Second, You construct a long tunnel under the harbor instead of using the Bush terminal LIRR lines which would need far less tunneling to reach Staten Island.
The Lower Montauk Branch has a serious problem with not connecting to anything more interesting than the LIC terminal. AlexB makes exactly the point I was implying: that branch would be a cheap stretch of subway for a borough that needs much better transit. I think it’s unreasonable to expect that any of this could be constructed as a cut and cover. A connection from the SI north shore line to the NEC could be an interesting short cut and potentially useful redundancy in the system. I’m trying to use existing project costs as much as possible for the underwater sections. Where I’m assuming rest-of-world construction costs is in the land section, between GCT and Fulton.
Crazy idea here, but given the setup of GCT as it is now, only ESA is goign to be capable of any through running without gutting the basement of GCT. At subsurface level, the vertical separation from Water Tunnel 1 is big enough to allow crossing over. The Port Authority Trans-Hudson Corporation (PATH) - The heavy rail transit system serves as the primary transit link between Manhattan and neighboring New Jersey urban communities and suburban railroads. But the federal stimulus reawakened the possibility of funding the project with national money. Yet, the City of Montreal and the State of New York have a different objective: connecting the French-Canadian city with Gotham. The map above shows the route of the proposed Boston-Montreal corridor and potential service routing off the line onto existing Amtrak routes. When developing high-speed rail networks, a 3h30 travel time constitutes the upper limit of how far people are willing to choose rail travel over air routes.
As the map demonstrates, only one major metro area, Boston, would be within 3h30 distance of Montreal, with several smaller cities such as Burlington also within striking distance. One major problem with this planned route is that trains would enter North Station, not South Station, where most service from Boston originates. In other words, a New York route would provide service to Montreal in five hours or less for the majority of the Northeastern seaboard, with the visible exception of Boston, which would be more like 6h30 away save for improvements along the Boston-Albany route. Even if the New York corridor were twice as expensive as the Boston route (it wouldn’t be), it would still provide more travel benefits to more people per unit of cost. But the only government-approved national rail map we have suggests that the Boston corridor is the one that deserves high-speed rail. Note: there are several technical problems that would have to be addressed for both potential routes to allow through-running. In New York, the Empire Connection, the line on the west side of Manhattan that trains would take to enter Penn Station, heads east as it enters the facility.
In Boston, trains arriving at North Station would similarly have to reverse directions to go northeast to Portland. Perhaps the easiest solution to overcoming the political imbalance between the two routes is to make Montreal-Albany and Boston-Albany one project: Montreal-Boston-Albany, allowing passengers to transfer at Albany to Boston, or, if demand was sufficient, to create through-service. It wouldn’t have the power of three states, but New York and Massachusetts together should be sufficient, especially with the better strategic transportation argument on their side. A few weeks ago, I took the bus to Montreal from Boston with my roommates and the trip took 7h30m.
This article also seems to completely disregard the benefits of all the Vermont and New Hampshire connections in between. I believe that connecting the entire New England region and providing a connection to Montreal is extremely important and that forcing New Englanders over to Albany to catch a train to Montreal, not only doesn’t make much sense, it is also a slap in the face to six states. I’m a daily reader and avid fan of the site, but I think the mark was missed on this article and too much emphasis placed on figures rather than the unique aspects of New England and the need for connections within the entire region.
In the immediate near term why not just duck the whole issue and upgrade the busiest sections of the northeast network, Boston – NY and the Empire corridor, ideally with Empire electrification (hopefully all the way to Toronto, which when combined with GO and the NEC would make a very nice start at a national electric system)?
This should be accompanied by an HSR study, but in the long term I really don’t see a way to justify both NY HSR and a parrallel New England route. Kyle called the NY – Montreal route a slap in the face to New England, but his discussion of it as a route for Massachusetts makes a regional service much more sensible. Sorry to double post, but I cant edit on here, and the link didn’t come out properly.
Boston to Montreal restores rail connectivity lost in the 1980’s when the Concord Lebanon section of the NH main line was abandoned.
What also needs to be developed is the restoration of some of the historic routes for seasonal and year round use that connect our major tourist destination. Such destinations as Newport, RI, Cape Cod, the NH Seacoast, Bar Harbor, ME historically had great raill connectivity but are now inaccessible except by the automobile. That same sort of rail to trail initiative happened in Newfoundland and Labrador after the Newfoundland Railway was closed in 1988, when I was one year old. By the way, I should add that I believe both the route from Montreal to New York and the one from Montreal to Boston make sense. Kyle, the problem with what you say about connectivity in Boston is that it’s equally true for New York, which is three times as big. This morning, Amtrak President Joseph Boardman and New Jersey Senators Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez headlined a press conference in which the railroad articulated a basic framework for a new rail tunnel into Manhattan. Though the necessity of a new rail link between New Jersey and Manhattan has been evident for years because of increased passenger traffic and decaying infrastructure, the decision by Mr. No funding is currently available for the project, even the $50 million necessary to kickstart engineering studies.
That project could arguably be constructed for fewer funds, since it would require little new tunneling under expensive Manhattan real estate.

Nonetheless, the Gateway Tunnel would service to reinforce the Northeast Corridor intercity rail system far more significantly, and even more than ARC would have. ARC would have dead-ended into a cavern far underground, making it both incompatible with the existing rail network but also deeply inconvenient to its riders, who would have had to ride long escalators to the top. The new tunnel’s capacity would be split between Amtrak and New Jersey Transit, with 8 intercity trains and 13 commuter trains per hour (added to 12 and 20, respectively, today). Yet the advantages of allowing through trains to use this facility ultimately mean Amtrak will not have to build yet another link under the Hudson in the coming years, as it had planned.
Amtrak will have to construct a very careful case for its project in order to assemble the necessary funding, especially in the context of a Republican Congress that has made cutting national investments its major priority. Ultimately, the national railroad’s best argument for the project is that it would serve national economic growth objectives, providing just the sort of infrastructure repair that the President has so forcefully recommended.
I thought ARC was somewhat bloated because they were going to build a huge new (unnecessary) train station 150 below street level. It would have to be bought by Amtrak and bulldozed; I forgot to mention that very important point. The cost went up because this price includes the Portal Bridge, cost increases on the ARC project, and the new station. Is the price so different because they are including the re-built Portal Bridge and the extension of the 7 under 31st? The Penn Station South station is completely redundant, but technically it’s better than ARC, since it would be connected to the old tunnel and the new tunnel would be connected to Penn. I presume that the high cost of the Amtrak plan comes from a) massive real estate acquisitions in Midtown, and b) the inclusion of a station cavern, albeit one located closer to the surface. Saying that this project would do nothing to speed up intercity trains is not entirely true. Another point on the ARC plan projecting a 25 tph throughput to the deep 6 stub track extension. Amtrak likely pads the NEC schedules a bit to allow for delays getting through the current tunnels.
The schedule used to be 15 minutes between Newark and New York and the trains were early most of the time. May I ask which city’s train operations those people you’re quoting were familiar with? Transportation merits aside, from a purely political prospective, why would the feds go anywhere near this?
If they built the No 7 into New Jersey why don’t they dig out a thrid track tunnel on it and have the whole tunnel withs built to Amtrak train sizes so that some of the trains could break away off of the main line in New Jersey and run though the extra tunnel built next to the subway tunnel and then go into to Penn Station along it and then jump back on the main line once they get out of Penn Station.
Such a system would remodel New York’s commuter rail along the lines of the Paris RER or a German S-Bahn. I believe a few of the route choices should be tweaked, but beyond this, most of the changes would be in station layout and in operations and scheduling.
The previous two posts emphasized through-routing and service to city neighborhoods; this coda will stress seamless operations, highlighting transferring and schedule convenience.
Timing reduces waiting time, and cross-platform configurations simplify walking from one train to another. This is little different from the practice in Paris, which configured the central transfer station, Chatelet-Les Halles, to allow cross-platform transfers from the north-south RER B to the east-west RER A. Those that are cross-platform should always be configured with two platforms, four station tracks, and possibly two bypass tracks; as much as possible, each route should stop reliably at the same platform, and schedules should be coordinated for timed transfers. But they could still be timed if trains wait for one another for a minute at each station, a process that can be performed off-peak without straining capacity; this is done on the Berlin U-Bahn for wrong-way transfers between the U6 and U7 at Mehringdamm.
The West Shore Line (part of the Orange Line) should have a new stop at 51st Street, near the Tonnelle Avenue stop of the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail.
Instead of going north under Hudson or Greenwich Street and stopping at Houston Street, it could go north on the same route as the Staten Island-Harlem connection (Blue Line), on separate tracks, and curve west north of Houston, stopping below the existing West 4th Street subway stop. It may not be cost-effective to run improved regional trains on their respective commuter lines’ full length. This tunnel would be expensive, at $7.4 billion, using the estimated costs for a Brooklyn-Jersey City freight tunnel as a baseline. One of the arguments I have heard proponents of the under construction Access to the Region’s Core project use is that the platforms at Penn are narrow and have narrow stairways to the concourses, so a new station is necessary (and will be built according to current plans for the ARC tunnel). Paving over half the tracks so that each track is adjacent to two platforms would not only widen the platforms and allow the installation of wider staircases and elevators, but also double the number of usable doors on the train. This solution would be more radical than remodeling existing platforms but might be cheaper for a given capacity. George Haikalis of the Institute for Rational Urban Mobility notes that only 54% of the lower concourse is used for passenger circulation purposes; the rest is consumed by Amtrak back offices and concessions.
The TER schedule is clockface: trains leave at regular intervals, at the same time every hour.
While the clockface example above is of half-hourly service, there is no lower limit to frequency: in New York, some buses already run clockface, even if they operate every five minutes.
The regularity is such that in Stuttgart, there is no need for a  comprehensive timetable; instead, a system map indicates at how many minutes after the hour each line arrives at each station. This does not worsen service as long as express trains are run on a limited-stop basis like express subway trains and if schedules are regular. The LIRR does this at Hicksville; other important junction stations include Woodlawn, Floral Park, Rahway, Valley Stream, Summit, and Newark Broad. This could cause problems on the Northeast Corridor, the LIRR lines feeding into East Side Access, and the lines feeding into the Hudson Line, which begin to branch out in inner-urban neighborhoods.
The system should still avoid mixing lines, for example running Montauk Branch trains to Penn Station instead of Fulton, but on the Northeast Corridor, Hudson Line, and LIRR Main Line, direct trains should serve both inner-urban branches from all outlying corridors. However, it may be better to use a  German- and Swiss-style proof of payment system, in which stations would be barrier-free and passengers would have to present tickets at fare inspections to be conducted at random. At the passenger density of the RER or Tokyo’s commuter rail system, or for that matter the New York City Subway, fare inspections are infeasible. If it could be shoehorned to the East River Tunnels, it would have been electrified and turned into a frequent commuter corridor decades ago. Fulton itself can’t be done cut-and-cover, but north of about Canal, the Fulton-GCT section might be doable.
As a result, both American and Canadian politicians have been arguing for the expansion of rail service from the metropolis south into the United States. This series of lines would include connections between Boston and Portland, Boston and Albany, Springfield and New Haven, and Boston and Montreal. Upgrades of the partially abandoned route could be sponsored by the Department of Transportation. In the 1970s, hyperactive Montreal mayor Jean Drapeau attempted to connect his city with New York via TGV, a project that was ultimately abandoned due to lack of governmental commitment. The 329-mile route between the two cities would take almost two hours to complete (and about one hour from Montreal to White River Junction, where the existing line branches off).
However, I have also included information on travel times of five hours to Montreal with the intention of demonstrating potential future expansions of true high-speed service and the implications for customers willing to travel further. Excluding Montreal, about 5.1 million people live in the metropolitan areas affected by this service, almost all of them in the Boston area.
This means that it would be impossible to continue service from Boston to Providence or Springfield, unless the North-South Rail Link connecting the terminals is ever built. That’s because the slightly longer than two hour trip between Montreal and New York would provide a direct connection to the center of the speedy Northeast Corridor. These numbers indicate unambiguously that the route from New York would be vastly more productive than the one from Boston. To allow trains to continue southwest to Philadelphia and beyond, the driver would have to go to the other end of the train (it would reverse directions). A direct connection to service emanating from South Station (west to Springfield or southwest to Providence) would not be possible unless Massachusetts built a connection either through the North-South Link or around the city at some location.
That would reduce travel times to Boston from Montreal from 6h30 to something closer to 3.5 hours. This means that connecting Montreal to Albany and thence New York would actually require less new construction than connecting it directly to Boston. There’s only one route from Toronto to Ottawa, as well as a route from Toronto to Montreal bypassing Ottawa.
We are marketing to geographic areas such as Europe and the Orient whose populace is conditioned to the availibbility of a balanced muliti-modal transportation system. In many cases the rail to trail initiative has taken over many connecting corridors for use as bicycle corridors preventing their use as rail corridors. I’ve been wanting to go to New York for a long time, but have never gotten around to doing it. Vermont’s population is about one third urban, well below world average and on a par with the third world.
Obama announced his intention to promote a high-speed rail system that connects 80% of the country’s population, the national railroad has made its first move. In addition, the Subway link would have the serious advantage of direct service to Grand Central Terminal and Queens, 24 hours a day — something neither New Jersey Transit or Amtrak will be able to offer. That’s because, unlike ARC, the Gateway Tunnel would be connected to Penn Station, allowing Amtrak trains running from Washington to Boston to use the link. This represents a decrease from the 25 additional hourly commuter trains ARC would have provided. In addition, the Gateway Tunnel would provide a vital backup in case something goes wrong with the 100-year-old tunnels currently serving trains between Manhattan and New Jersey.

Unlike ARC, Gateway would serve intercity as well as commuter traffic, so it is unclear whether the Federal Transit Administration would agree to sign up to aid in sponsoring it. I know it’s a large fraction, and that the actual tunnel under the river had little to no contribution to the cost overrun, but there were a few other issues, especially real estate acquisitions on the Manhattan side. The ARC plans for the north Portal Bridge replacement was to allow 90 mph speeds, up from the current 60 mph slow order for the 100+ year old Portal Bridge. I’ve read posts from people familiar with train operations who thought that 25 tph number was never realistic for 6 stub tracks running through 2 long tunnels with no place to park trains. Would not be surprised if the new tunnels, bridges, and tracks on the NJ side would knock 3-5 minutes off the Amtrak travel time between Newark and NYC Penn Stations. From the time the doors closed to the time they opened was frequently 13 minutes and if you got a engineer who didn’t mind going over 100 in the Meadows, 12 was possible. I’m willing to buy that 25 tph was unrealistic given the common dwell times of New York, but in Tokyo they run 28 tph to a two-track terminal on the Chuo Line, with no room to park trains.
The moment it is, however, the FRA will require either limits in operating hours or expensive upgrades (and downgrades), so a connection is not possible.
The FRA-regulated-but-running-on-a-waiver PATH even has a cross-platform transfer with New Jersey Transit. The north-south tracks (Blue Line) could stay the same, but the east-west tracks (Yellow and Orange Lines) could be tweaked: the tunnel from Flatbush to Manhattan would be moved further south to give the tracks time to curve north, and then the tracks would curve west to the Village as in the first plan.
This would allow cross-platform transfers between the LIRR-Morristown and Northeast Corridor trains at Sunnyside and Secaucus, relieving Penn Station. The Morristown Line  (Purple Line) should have an infill stop at Orange Street in Newark, intersecting the original Newark subway, which has no direct connection to Newark Broad Street Station. Unfortunately, West 4th is a three-level station, so crossing under it would require diving deep underground, substantially increasing costs. The original plan already cut out some low-ridership branches and line segments; however, there may be room for more cuts, for examples west of Raritan on the Raritan Valley Line, east of Ronkonkoma and Babylon on the LIRR, and west of Dover on the Morristown Line.
The main benefit of the Staten Island tunnel is not cost per rider, but commute shortening. At a much lower cost, the North Shore Line could be extended west on an existing freight rail bridge, follow the Morristown and Erie and Conrail lines to cross the Northeast Corridor at an infill station north of Linden and then join the Raritan Valley Line at Cranford. The LIRR recently remodeled its platforms and the lower concourse so that each of its platforms has four or five staircases leading up to waiting areas.
This would leave Penn with 11 or 12 tracks, of which only nine would connect to both the North River Tunnels under the Hudson and East River tunnels. Each line has two departure times, spaced exactly half an hour apart, with additional peak hour trains at the quarter-hour marks. Once a new pair of tracks under the Hudson River is in place, clockface scheduling will become even easier.
As on the subway, regional rail express trains should enable people to make diagonal travel, going from suburb to suburb without passing through Manhattan, switching instead at an outlying transfer point such as Jamaica. At those stations, as far as possible the schedule should time outbound and inbound trains to facilitate diagonal transfers: where platform arrangements permit cross-platform transfers, for example at Valley Stream, the trains should arrive at the same time, and where they do not, for example at Woodlawn, the outbound train should arrive one minute after the inbound train.
When there is too much branching to run hourly trains to all branches without running them empty on the common trunk lines, the branches could be served with shuttles with timed transfers off-peak.
Such a system could even extend to bus service, and would go a long way to reducing operating costs. By subway standards the existing LIRR tunnels are operating below capacity, so they’re the most logical option for providing local service. The three states began studying a connection with Canada and released a report detailing potential services in April 2003. New York’s state rail plan pushes an improvement of the connection between Albany and Montreal, but only after the link between Buffalo and Albany is substantially accelerated. I produced these maps by calculating existing travel times on Amtrak from Boston, White River Junction, and Montreal; the map assumes no improvement of service on any of the other lines shown here. Expanding time to 5h would reach 1.2 million more people and allow travel to Springfield and Portland. In addition to New York and Albany, cities within 3h30 of Montreal would include Newark, Trenton, Philadelphia, Stamford, New Haven, and Springfield. It is in the national public interest to ensure that funding go to the former, rather than latter, route.
That fact says a lot about the problems with the American political system and our unwillingness to submit national policy to an objective test. To speed things up, there could be another driver ready to assume controls as the train entered New York, to allow for a seamless and potentially stop-free transition. This was also the same in Prince Edward Island, as well as some rail lines in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick (for example, Frederiction, NB, the province’s capital, has no rail lines anymore, and neither does in the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia, west of Halifax).
This was confirmed decades ago when local leaders tried to pitch HSR to New York as a way of competing with Toronto. Several new dead-end platforms would be constructed just south of the existing station, forming a new terminus for New Jersey Transit and opening up more space in the existing Penn Station for Amtrak and potentially Metro-North trains from Upstate New York and Connecticut.
The plans to connect the Bergen and Passaic lines to ARC to allow for direct service to Manhattan have been abandoned.
On the other hand, the Federal Railroad Administration, which administers high-speed rail funds, might want to get involved — but this project would do nothing to speed up trains, since it would simply duplicate a service that already exists. But the 2 new tunnels would address the bottleneck problem and a frequent cause of delays getting into Penn Station in NYC.
For 25 tph, the trains would have to unload and load in 10 minutes with no delays or buffer for any problems.
There are plenty of places that need HSR money, and not enough funds to go around as it is. And the new Flatbush-Fulton tunnel (Yellow and Orange Lines) would pass under the Jay Street and Court Street-Borough Hall subway stops, permitting a new Borough Hall station to be constructed; this stop would offer transfers to both Court Street and Jay Street stations. In Tokyo, one of the reasons for substantial subway cost escalation in recent years is that to cross existing lines, new lines have to burrow deep underground, as this new tunnel would have to. Residents of Staten Island are in a near-tie with those of Queens for the longest average commutes in the United States.
The Metro-North schedule has some clockface patterns as well, but they are less regular and break down on the shoulders of rush hour. Berlin, whose services are more complex, does have a timetable, but each of its lines maintains clockface scheduling with intervals of five, ten, or twenty minutes; further, the schedule shows that on the Stadtbahn, the S3 and S5 arrive at the shared stops simultaneously, allowing cross-platform transfers. While transit’s greatest advantage over cars is over straight trips that end in or pass through Manhattan, it can also serve useful purpose for a substantial number of diagonal trips.
The MTA’s recent Making Every Dollar Count report says that out of every dollar the agency obtains in revenue, it needs to spend fifteen cents on fare collection. But with stimulus funds for high-speed rail soon to be distributed, it’s worth considering what routes would be most appropriate for possible service.
The study advocated 110 mph top speed service on the 329-mile route, providing a 5h48 trip between Boston and Montreal. What follows is a comparison of a hypothetical major investment on the two most prominent visions of high-speed routes between the cities, at average speeds of 180 mph.
Within five hours: Wilmington, Baltimore, Washington, Hartford, New London, Providence, and Syracuse. If our high-speed rail dollars are to be well-spent, we have an obligation to compare the benefits of multiple corridors and invest in the most effective option. Otherwise, passengers would have to change stations to transfer to other trains, slowing down connections and making through-routing impossible.
If New York-Montreal HSR detours through Burlington instead of paralleling the existing route, then there will be even fewer mountain crossings. If you want good rail service in Vermont, ask the state to pay money for electrifying the Vermonter to have through-service to the Northeast Corridor; if there is New York-Montreal HSR, it might make sense to do the same to the Ethan Allen Express. I know, I’ve been stuck on the Acela in the peak morning hours waiting on the NJ side to get into Penn Station enough times. The Gateway additional tph numbers for the 7 new stub tracks, places to park trains, and four available tunnels are more realistic at first glance. I believe this option would be worth it if the cost were the same or lower than that of the route proposed in the original plan.
Remodeling the NJT tracks would be expensive, as it was for the LIRR, but building a new station would be much more pricey. The current train service pattern squanders this opportunity: for example, the New Haven Line trains skip all stations in the Bronx, making it difficult to travel to stations on the Harlem Line. But either faregates or proof of payment would cost much less than having multiple conductors per train collecting tickets. New Hampshire, more focused on expanding highways into Boston, abandoned interest and the project has laid dormant since.
By comparing the routes at high speeds rather than the 70 or 80 mph averages typically proposed by the investment-weary states, the ultimate advantages of the different routes can be more easily discerned. But even that is pork to one of the few Northeastern states that get more federal spending than it pays in taxes.
