Having more NJT trains stuck on stub end tracks is a good idea? Just more to send back west through the same two overcrowded tubes.

Edit: sorry didnt see the two new tunnels under the hudson in the previous pic.

I believe that plan is for the original idea, and doesn't reflect Andy "Rivers" "Shivers" Cuomo's plan which is just stick 8 tracks onto penn
china does trains better
nationalize the class 1s

From the little I can find about the details, it seems like the same plan. Cuomo is taking credit for Amtrak's original plan? Politics maybe?
