Re: M7 Door lights!

RestricingontheHanger, you are confusing LIRR M7's with MN M7's. This thread is of course for MN. The lights on the outside of the two agencies equipment differs in a few regards. On the LIRR a blue light on the outside of the leading cab does indeed mean the ASC is active. On MN there is no such t...

If the blue light is active, then yes your speed control will be set to zero since the equipment should not be moved.

Re: The return of filthy trains?

The yankee trains are always disgusting. Why??? The passengers that ride then are not commuters and dont give a * about the fact that people have to ride these things every day. For the most part all trains are cleaned at the point where it turnes and trains turn multiple times a day.

Re: Status of the **Work Engine** fleet

Full FRA compliant defect tag, speed restriction, and can only be moved for purpose of repair. You could not use it for anything, but for it to move that brake had to be released unless you want to burn a wheel off. http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/cfr_2009/octqtr/49cfr229.9.htm funny part about rules...
