Before this thread.... derails.... onto some NYC topic, the TriboroRX and Fairmont are vastly different animals. Fairmount was an existing commuter rail line that needed more stations and more service. TriboroRX is a single track freight line that didn't have passenger service for most stretches and is in disrepair. A more appropriate comparison would be Penn Access which would add new stations along the NEC so that Metro North trains can serve the eastern Bronx into Penn Station.
Thanks Van. i understand the concern about derailing (no pun intended) the thread

I'm moving these posts to this Housing thread that was last used in 2017. This is definitely a topic worthy of conversation. I'd like to keep this thread focused on developments surrounding the transit service.
