NJ Transit Chief: Train Storage Decision ‘Sound’

New Jersey Transit’s executive director says the decision was “sound” to store rail cars in Hoboken and Kearney before Superstorm Sandy hit.

Jim Weinstein says rail yards in the two cities had never flooded before.

NJ Transit trains sustained about $100 million in damages from storage yard flooding.

Weinstein was the first to testify Monday at an Assembly Transportation Committee hearing on the storm. The panel is examining damage to New Jersey’s highways and mass transit system caused by the hurricane.

Transportation Commissioner Jim Simpson was asked to testify but did not show up.

Some transit advocates say the storm exposed problems with the state’s transportation policy, including inadequate spending to maintain infrastructure.
