-Sunday morning deep in snow. What is pulling the limited service on the New Haven line today? Two hour limited schedules.

I can't say about the New Haven line, but the Hudson line is OK as long as the equipment is an M7.

I was on one of the diesels this morning and the Genny was having problems. We lost everything right near Yankee Stadium and waited. The Crew got her going again.

The protect Geep was idling inside the station just in case we broke down in the tunnel. We made it.
