Re: On-Duty Metro-North Conductor Arrested

From a previous message:

"It's right up there with claiming the MTA allows you to cross between cars on 60' equipment due to the doors being unlocked."

Years ago before the increased usage of air-conditioned subway cars and full-width conductor/train operator cabs on trains that use the current #1 line at the South Ferry Loop station - passengers were advised to walk from subway car to subway car to reach the first five cars of the subway trains that would stop at the South Ferry Loop station.

There was even signage posted within the subway cars, as well as conductor announcements about making such a walking journey.

After the usage of full-width cabs within such trains passengers headed to the South Ferry Loop station were advised to walk along the platform at the Rector Street station.

The trains that travel along the former IRT lines aka "the number lines" have cars that are 51 feet in length.
