So that the railroad wont be in a bind come the PTC deadline if there are bugs or further delays with the M9 project, that's what it has to do with the M9 procurement and acceptance.

Either way, not going to happen.

According to Wikipedia the M9 should be field testing on the LIRR this month while deliveries will start over the summer. I have yet to see an M9 on the LIRR tracks.

LIRR is doing Harold Signal work this weekend in addition to finishing up the rail tie project in Island Park and any other projects or maintenance schedules.

M3 breakdowns are constant. M9 will be very nice!

I am hoping M9’s will be utilized on city terminal zone lines, M9 seems ideal for stations in this area which include shorter platforms.

Just about every electric train runs in the City Terminal Zone...
