Re: Full Shutdown of L Train to Be Halted by Cuomo

Low smoke and fire resistant coatings were not available when these tunnels were built. That's the way they were always built. It doesn't mean that's the way they should or would be today. Railroads put up poles and rand copper cables for signals, today they bury fiber optic cable wherever possible. We don't have to do things the same way they have been done all along when a better way is developed. Change comes slowly though, nobody wants to be first, and there is great comfort in doing what you are familiar with.
