New Cortland Station

Post by BobLI » Fri Jan 06, 2012 11:24 am

I saw an MTA poster on the train today about the new improvemants at the Cortland station. As I recall, that was a very narrow center platform and also had what looked like a freight track running along the operating engineers property. Was the 3 track plan there changed and the platform widened?

No, the platform and track arrangement are the same, but there is a new parking lot, station waiting area and overpasses.
Hurry up and wait at the signal!
