Re: A Historical Hudson Line Question

I'd even stick my neck out further & say that in our lifetime, we might even see 3d rail ripped up north of Yankee Stadium on the Hudson & north of Woodlawn over on the Harlem.
With the success of the push-pull operations on the Hudson, Shoreliner coaches with the GE locomotives have quadrupled ridership while maintaining a 95+% on time performance level.

This knocks dowm the FRA mandate for the need of more rigerous inspections of the M series cars a/c each car is considered an electric locomotive whereas Bomb cars are obviously not, resulting in more freed up equiptment.

The MTA suits privetly admmit it was a mistake to run 3d rail to Southeast, after seeing that what was happening over on the Husdon was so successful.

Also as an historical aside, the MTA wanted to rip up entirely tk 1 on the hudson from CP12 to OW after reverse & cab signalling was installed. When NYS DOT heard about this, they screamed not so fast so the track is still there, but the 3d rail north of Greystone(on tk 1) is gone.
