Trees Are Destroying New York City

When will New York City win its war against leaves? The B and the Q trains are still enjoying a late fall issue, according to the MTA: "Fallen leaves, when crushed by train wheels, leave a slippery residue on the rails which may affect the train's ability to start and stop." What is this mysterious "residue"? Why do we allow trees to attack our important infrastructure? Let's finish this once and for all. Kill the trees, save the subways.

England has had railroads for, what, more than 150 years and they are still regularly disrupted by leaves. Don't hold your breath.

First it was kittens, now leaves. Clearly Mother Nature hates the B/Q line.
