Earlier today (January 4) Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and MTA Chairman Thomas F. Prendergast provided media with an update on this morning’s LIRR derailment at Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn.But then consider this passage from the press conference:
At approximately 8:15 a.m., LIRR Train No. 2817, scheduled to depart from Far Rockaway at 7:18 a.m. and due into Atlantic Terminal, Brooklyn, at 8:11 a.m., made contact with the bumping block at Track 6 at Atlantic Terminal.
Reporter: When did the train leave?It doesn't.
Tom Prendergast: I don't know the interval because the Far Rockaway train comes in from Far Rockaway and into Atlantic Yards.
