Are we talking about the stupid wooden plant that protects the third
rail from pigeons?
FWIW, the MTAs perspective is what the problem is here. There is no way
a non-tracable power surge should take out more than half the system
during the rush, let alone, that they are not to be believed anyway.
There was no power problem that ConEd ever found and I think the MTA
made the whole thing up to CYA.
Where I was stuck yesterday was just a few yards from the rail that
caused the train to be stuck for hours 3 weeks ago. They are having
trouble with their new equipment there. It is a failure, and they
refuse to let engineers to run trains, as they had for decades, on sight
and sound. They centralized everything with crappy equiptment and when
they go blind on Madison Avenue, they stop everything dead.... riders be
