NJ Transit parts shortage
Posted by blue streak 1 on Thursday, January 11, 2018 3:42 AM

Typical political problem.  Get incompetents in place but do not plan for replacement parts.  It would seem that when ever you buy equipment that a contract provides for replacement parts.  That would maybe have requirement that all parts drawings and tools revert to buying agency instead of them being scrapped.  Granted that will not always be feasible but over 200 OOS cars ?
