Ep. 16 of ‘The Next Stop Is…’ talks subway derailments, LIRR shakeups

by Benjamin Kabak

NextStopis “The Next Stop Is…”, the Second Ave. Sagas podcast, makes its triumphant return after a two-month break and not a moment too soon. In this week’s episode, Eric and I discuss Friday’s F train derailment, its the immediate impact and what the future could hold for the MTA’s rail replacement efforts. This is of course the hot topic of the week. Then, we spent a few minutes reviewing the changes at the top at the LIRR. With Helena Williams out and Pat Nowakowski in, the new President has his work cut out for him both in harnessing East Side Access and in responding to the potential for a summer strike.

This week’s recording checks in at just over 21 minutes — a perfect running time for your Monday evening ride. You can grab the podcast right here on iTunes or pull the raw MP3 file.

I wouldn’t say that the LIRR doesn’t have any big projects going on at the moment, it’s quite the opposite…they have several projects ongoing. While they are not directly controlling East Side Access’ progress, they are in the process of, or are just about to start, working on a number of projects to get them ready for East Side Access’ opening.
