New York Subway Trains Hel Together With Zip Ties

New-York-SubwayAt more than $1 million per subway car, you’d think they’d be held together with something more than zip ties.A savvy straphanger noticed a homespun addition to her 7 train Wednesday morning when she saw part of the car fastened with zip ties.

“Zip ties used on the undercarriage of a #7train..is this standard?” tweeted MsJaya_B. “How often are these checked for wear and tear?”

With all the problems the MTA has had recently, writers can hardly be blamed for thinking the worst.

An MTA spokeswoman said Wednesday that the zip tie was being used as a temporary fastener to attach a cable to the new R186 cars while a special part is being made. She added that the cable is attached another way, and the zip tie is just a back-up.

    OH, ANOTHER CITY RUN BY DEMOCRATS AND GIVING ALL OUR TAX MONEY AWAY TO ILLEGALS, A SANCTURAY CITY. GET RID OF CUMO.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212 WAS PASSED IN 1952 AND THIS LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED. IT BANS ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO DESTROY US, THAT INCLUDE A MUSLIMS.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES?

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.

    Only someone who didn’t understand zip ties would have complained. They are used all the time on race cars, racing motorcycles as well as for handcuffs. One of the all time great inventions. Securing wires is one of the more common uses of them.

      MR. bull has arrived ,didn’t read the article . These are new cars and not old ones .

        Sure is a lot of rust for a new car. Since I can’t really see what is being held in place I would defer to the mechanic who put the zip tie on. My racing motorcycle has about twenty zip ties holding the faring together. Ever try to break a zip tie? The average on can take around 30 lb of force with the larger ones going up to 120 lbs. The FAA has approved of their use in some places as has NASA. Now ask me about Duct Tape.
