This makes no sense. The whole point of MLVs is that they pack as many passengers into a single North River Tunnel window as possible. In every other respect, they are not ideal - slow boarding and deboarding, low passenger comfort, probably more difficult for the conductors, expensive custom design. If you want to get more capacity to Hoboken, never ever order them, no need for any train that does not fit in the tunnels, just get some single level coaches. Plenty of space and slots into Hoboken.

The AX-2 issues were at speeds much above 100mph.
