All:
 
I had heard (via an old co-worker who now works on NJT) that NJT might be purchasing MU  bilevels.
 
Anything "concrete" on this?
 
Also, do you think that the LIRR might, one day, operate MU bilevels? (I know they DID operate such MU's until the early 1970's)
 
It would seem that the MU's have an advantage over their locomotive hauled-counterparts, in that no locomotive is need to power them.
 
Appreciate any input....thanks......

Nothing "concrete", but I've heard the same thing. Seems to be the way to carry more passengers without having longer trains.
