Are Old Railroads in New York and New Jersey a Problem?

Last winter there were delays. This summer there were delays. Is the aging infrastructure of the railway system in the New York and New Jersey area merely an inconvenience, or is it potentially dangerous?

As government funds for railroads have become more limited in recent decades, some railroad companies have put off needed maintenance and repairs. Additional projects to accommodate a boom in commuter ridership have also been put off and further tax an already aging railway system.

Will the Railroad Infrastructure Be Updated?

It is currently unclear how Amtrak, NJ Transit and others will pay for needed repairs and maintenance. In the meantime, as riders continue to travel by train, it is important to be aware of the potential problems and know what to do if you are in a New York railroad accident.
