Re: [PHOTOS] Third Track Project At Mineola

Agreed 100% The design for Mineola is mind boggling-ly flawed! EB OBs will now have to foul the middle and then wb track (AND STOP ON THE WB TRACK) and they're going to have to build an entirely new eb platform, where as they could've just built the 3rd track on the south side of the EB platform. That would allow eb OBs to pull in and stop on the middle track, then proceed when wb track is clear (as currently done) while other main line eb trains could just bypass or pull in simultaneously on the southernmost track. More $$$ being spent for less operational flexibility. And then even if they go to fix the issue so eb OBs don't have to foul the wb track while making the stop, they'll still have to foul the ENTIRE main when departing Mineola.
