Re: NJ governor signs law requiring NJT to conduct feasibility study for RVL one-seat ride to NYP

The problem is that the third rail as used on the LIRR preceded the catenary as used on the PRR by several decades and by that time, so much of the LIRR was electrified that it would have been prohibitively expensive to redo the entire railroad especially since much of the PRR was done during the depression with federal money.
