NJ Transit looks to shelter trains

1-9-14

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Transit is looking to better protect its rail cars from storms.

The agency on Wednesday awarded a $7.6 million contract to a company to perform engineering and design work to transform a rail yard near New Brunswick into a long-term site for storing rail equipment.

NJ Transit was criticized for not moving rail cars and locomotives out of a rail yard in Kearny and another one in Hoboken during Superstorm Sandy. Flooding caused more than $100 million in damage.
