There are days here where I swear that I keep writing the same story over and over again. So once again, new rail cars for the Metro North New Haven line are dealyed. It’s not just me, the rail commuters and the public that is frustrated. State Senator Bob Duff has this to say:
from a press release:
STATEMENT FROM SENS. DEFRONZO & DUFF ON LATEST M8 RAIL CAR DELAY
Hartford - State Senators Donald DeFronzo (D-New Britain) and Bob Duff (D-Norwalk), Senate chair and vice chair of the General Assembly’s Transportation Committee, today issued the following statement in response to reports that the debut of new M8 rail cars on the Metro-North rail line will be delayed:
“We are extremely disappointed that the debut of the M8 cars has again been delayed. While we fully support the need for safety and reliability, another delay affects our constituents directly. Over and over, they have been told one thing, only to find that the situation again changes. We have a responsibility to provide quality service on this line, the busiest rail line in the country.
