NJTransit Normal Schedule Resumption

Postby Yankees1 » Mon Jan 07, 2019 11:25 pm

Any word on when the normal schedule will be restored? I imagine they will introduce the cut trains in reverse order of when they cut them (Restore RVL direct and AC line before restoring the rest of the NJCL Hoboken trains)

They're still cancelling trains left and right so I can't imagine they will restore them anytime soon.

As per the governor and NJT, the FRA has to sign off on some of the engines that have had PTC installed before they can be operated again. Until then they will gather rust due to the federal shutdown. My money is that even if the shutdown ends tomorrow, the current schedule will continue throughout February.

NJT has explicitly stated that the shutdown is not affecting them in any way and FRA inspectors are considered essential personnel who are still working.

Yep, with the caveat that they have said the opposite too at least per the media, for example, here https://www.crainsnewyork.com/transportation/nj-transit-trains-idle-project-overtook-daily-tasks. At this point my money is on a delay in the restoration, especially on the AC line, but I hope I am wrong. Maybe partial restoration of the cancelled trains on the NEC and the other busy lines with the Raritan trains to NYC and the AC line delayed further, but really, who knows ... My guess will be as good as yours on this.
