Deal will fund last 3 years of MTA capital plan - lohud.com

Came across this article from March 26th, 2012 on lohud.com. It is great that Metro-North has received funding to continue their build out of the Croton-Harmon Shops.

For Metro-North Railroad, which is an MTA division, it means funding for another new shop at the Croton-Harmon yard and other upgrades. Much of it goes to replacing tracks and other work to keep facilities in good shape.

“It’s not sexy, but it’s essential,” said Metro-North spokeswoman Marjorie Anders.

The most noticeable change to passengers will be a $55 million project to install monitors at almost all its stations in New York state with information about when the next several trains are due, whether they’re on time and what tracks they will arrive on. Five stations now use them — White Plains, Larchmont, Fordham, Harlem-125th Street and the Bronx stop near Yankee Stadium.

The capital plan initially provided $9.1 billion, to cover the first two years.

make that SIX stations that have the info monotors - the Poughkeepsie station has had them for several years now - before the renovation work began or... is this a diferant/special type of info monitor that Poughkeepsie does not yet have?
