Re: NY Senate Urges MTA To Reject Proposal To cut LIRR service into Penn Station

PS... if a pilot locomotive were used, MNCR would not need to use a DM locomotive, a straight diesel would do just fine.

The train stops just outside of the station and the Toaster connects to the train. The diesel cuts the prime mover. The Toaster pulls the train into the station.

To leave, the engineer is in the cab of the diesel, but is MU'd to the Toaster. The toaster pushes him out of the station under the control of the lead locomotive, and then the consist stops for a moment to cut off the toaster and start the diesel. The train leaves, the toaster awaits the next incoming consist.

After all there is no way MNCR can glom onto more than one track, and even that would be at the price of giving NJT (or AMTK) an LIRR track in exchange.
