Sharing the track in Buffalo

Postby SST » Sat May 27, 2017 2:34 pm

Here is a picture taken while "chasing" a NFTA METRO car down Main St. This is the new sharing section. I personally think its a flop because the parking they boast about is limited despite what the picture looks like. I think they should have single tracked from the tunnel to Seneca St to provide more parking. Diagonal instead of parallel as it is now.

Oh well, for a few minutes I had some fun.

Did you have a clear approach signal?

Probably ok--looks capable of stopping within 1/2 of sighting distance ...

Solid green. Maintained separation within respectable limits.

The solid green is for the streetcar ahead. Could this be a possible Richmond Hill in the making?
