    Port Washington Branch at Little Neck


    062
    by Nexis4Jersey09, on Flickr

    Opened : July 1870 (F&NS)
    Daily Passengers : 2,886
    Electrified : 750V DC 3rd Rail
    County : Queens

    Little Neck Parkway at the west end of the station crosses the line at the only at-grade railroad crossing on the Port Washington Branch, and one of the few remaining in New York City. It is also the only "quiet" grade crossing in the LIRR system. Trains do not need to blow their horns here, because trains are coming to a complete stop here, and Little Neck Parkway is not a high-traffic road. It is regarded as the most dangerous crossing in the city.

    Some NJ Transit trains smell like a barnyard, and here's why


    By Larry Higgs | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

    What's that smell? In this case, it was an odor better suited to a farm rather than a commuter train.

    NJ Transit officials admitted that their trains parked in Morrisville, Pa., are leaving the yard with something extra - the odor from a nearby mulch factory.

    The stinky secret was revealed by an NJ Transit customer service representative who replied to commuter Jen Levins official complaint reporting a "horrible smell" on her commuter train on April 2.

    Commuters could be hit with an NJ Transit fare increase that might reach 9 percent in fiscal year 2016, based on budget documents for the coming year.

    NJ Transit's budget documents said revenue from fares would increase by 8.8 percent, from the $928.6 million earned in fiscal year 2015 to $1.01 billion in 2016, according to an Office of Legislative Services' review of NJ Transit's financials.

    A 106-year-old drawbridge, which carries North Jersey Coast Line trains over the Raritan River, will be replaced due to structural damage from Hurricane Sandy.

    “We applied for the (federal) funding because the existing bridge was damaged and a new structure with a resilient design is necessary,” said Nancy Snyder, a spokeswoman for NJ Transit. “It did suffer structural damage.”
