NYC Area transit agencies are once again studying the possibility of extending the 7 Train from Hudson Yards in Midtown, Manhattan to New Jersey. I would like to get your thoughts on where this train should go.
Maybe the 7 train:
should be extended to the Journal Square Train Station in Jersey...
1. Why isn't there a direct subway link to JFK Airport in NYC? Would it make sense to extend the A Train from Lefferts BLVD to JFK Airport?
2. Regarding The Hudson Tunnel Project, would it make sense for the local contributions to be increased from 50% to 60%?
It is my understanding that a typical service life of a high-speed train-set is around 30 years.
But, then why is it that in Japan, all of the shinkansen high speed train-sets always get replaced after twenty years?
I was trying to locate statistics but could not find them.
I want to know:
Which is the busier segment of the Lexington Avenue Subway Line in New York City: 125th street to Grand Central/42nd street or Grand Central/42nd street to Bowling Green?
How many passengers do these segments carry on...
How long in feet is the Empire Tunnel in Midtown, Manhattan?
What is the grade of this tunnel?
What are the interior dimensions of the Empire Tunnel?
What is the maximum authorized speed within this tunnel?
Are the new E320 train-sets an expansion of the Eurostar fleet or replacement of the old fleet that was put in service in the 1990's?
What is the height of the catenary wire above the tracks?
What about double decker trains on the Eurostar line?
