Re: New Atlanta MARTA metro design unveiled

Shortening trains isnít free either. In addition to labor costs, you also have wear and tear on the coupler mechanisms.

"Cutting" a train or "cutting and adding" is the terminology used.

It's also done daily at Lefferts on the A for OPTO service to Euclid.

All of these locations like Metropolitan, Lefferts, Dyre, have "station switching" jobs and have for decades.

Unless you make a "hard add", the couplers will be fine.
