Pennsylvania station train derail – CWEB.com
Biggest commuter hub in the US has trains running into each other, or derailing routinely. Last month, commuters got a preview of how traveling between the two states could become a nightmare if the current tunnel is closed for emergency repairs. An Amtrak train derailed near the tunnel, closing half of Pennsylvania Station’s tracks and leading to widespread train cancellations and delays.
“Without this project and this tunnel, that becomes the day-to-day existence for commuters, and I don’t think anybody wants that to happen.” Carlo Scissura, Building Congress President & CEO in today’s The New York Times.
