Re: New MTA statement on L-train project

So for some time now there's been no way to evacuate a train in the tunnel?

Wait for a rescue train, or turn off power and climb down the front or rear storm door onto the rail roadbed. There were no catwalks on the original subway; there are no catwalks on the els.

A long time ago, there was an incident on the Lex (above 42nd St) where people were waiting over an hour to be evacuated. They could not use the catwalk and had to wait for a rescue train to arrive.
