Fantastic article, thanks for posting it! I heard plenty about the problems of the Washington DC network, but I had no idea that the NYC subway was getting this run down. It's pretty fascinating to see how it keeps on going, yet is slowly falling apart at the seams.

There is a huge crisis of bridges all over America... I think that's related.

Of course it is infrastructure in general, so some trains are more dangerous then they should be. At first it seems like random derailings or failures that are unrelated to running over people on the tracks are not common, but then it's realized that I have heard of several in my lifetime (just in the single "metro area"), when I should have heard of only from 0 - 3.

The bridges are the biggest issue though because many more people can die. In most of the subway detailings, nobody died. Although a federal evaluation of bridges was done, it was done, many, many bridges were found inadequate in many states, and most states have not put in the funds to actually fix them sense then.

In short, bridges in America are dangerous, so you may wish to avoid them if they look old.

It's so cold in Chicago right now that they're setting train switches on fire to keep them operating!
