Re: Put-Ins/Pull Outs

From a previous message:

"The 2 tracks within the confines of Canal St station cannot hold full length 600 ft trains so they really can't be used for any practical storage purposes."

In the 1970's the EE and RR trains were 8 cars in length, at 480 feet, which I believe were short enough to fit on those two former express tracks within the confines of the City Hall local R station.

Yes, the expansion to regular 10-cars of 600-foot trains renders those tracks not as useful as before.
