Talking Transportation: Old Cars, New Cars

By Jim Cameron

Special to WestportNow

New rail cars are on their way, slowly, for Metro-North commuters in Connecticut. 

talkingtransportation250.jpg

If all keeps to plan, the ribbon cutting ceremony for the first car will be three years from now.  But, delivered at a slow but steady rate, it will be 2010 or 2011 before you’ll probably ride in a shiny new M8 car with any consistency—and pay a buck more per ride for the privilege.

But now there’s discussion of ordering more M8 cars by diverting money from the “CSR Program” that’s rehabilitating the oldest cars in the fleet.  That’s a terrible idea, and here’s why.

Remember the winter of 2003 when the lethal combination of granular snow and weeks of sub-freezing temperatures pretty much ground the railroad to a halt?

Look for a Snow Dusting Monday

The National Weather Service said today a storm moving up the East Coast will produce a wintry mix of precipitation across New York City and nearby surrounding suburbs, including Westport.

The precipitation will begin as a period of rain or a mixture of rain and snow late tonight. By around sunrise on Monday, enough cold air will filter into the region to change the precipitation over to snow, an advisory said.

Light snow is then expected to fall until late Monday morning. with dry weather Monday afternoon.

With temperatures forecast to be above freezing during the snowfall, coupled with the recent mild weather we have been experiencing, any snow accumulation is expected to occur only on grassy and colder surfaces. nd not on concrete and paved surfaces.
