NEWARK, N.J. — In response to the money lost when more than 300 trains were damaged by flooding during Hurricane Sandy, New Jersey Transit officials want to purchase 25 acres of land in Middlesex County to create a dry place to park trains in the event of a weather emergency, NJ Advance Media reports.  

NJ Transit officials are scheduled to vote Thursday to negotiate purchasing land and tracks to provide a place on high ground to move trains to from flood prone areas. Locomotives and railcars stored in two separate rail yards were damaged by flood waters following Hurricane Sandy in October 2012. For the full story, click here.
