Re: Blog Post: IBX cannot be a tram

I think it is the requirement for third rail that makes them too narrow. The cars are 10' wide, but the subway needs additional width. Isn't that what happened with the tunnel in the Bronx with the 9th Ave el and the thought to extend the Lenox line to Jerome? They couldn't fit the subway style 3rd rail in it without major modification and they just dropped it.
