On May 17, 2013, in Bridgeport, Connecticut, an accident occurred on Metro-North’s New Haven Line, when an eastbound Metro-North train of 8 cars, traveling 74 mph, derailed and came to rest on an adjacent track. Approximately 20 seconds later, a westbound Metro-North train on that adjacent track struck the derailed train. As a result of the accident, more than 50 people, some seriously injured, were hospitalized, rail operations were suspended, and millions in property damage occurred. • On May 28, 2013, a second accident occurred when a Metro-North train in West Haven, Connecticut, that was traveling 70 mph, struck and killed a Metro-North maintenance-ofway (MOW) employee who was part of a roadway work group performing railroad maintenance on a construction project. • On July 18, 2013, a third accident occurred when a CSX Transportation freight train derailed while traveling over Metro-North’s system. No one was injured, but property damage was significant. • On December 1, 2013, the fourth accident occurred when a Metro-North train of 7 cars traveling south from Poughkeepsie, New York, to Grand Central Terminal in New York City, derailed as it approached the Spuyten Duyvil Station. All cars derailed and the front cab came to rest close to the Harlem River. Four passengers were killed, and more than 70 were injured. Rail operations were suspended, and millions of dollars in property damage alone was sustained. On December 3, 2013, 2 days after the fourth and most serious of these accidents, FRA sent a letter to MTA expressing support for Governor Andrew Cuomo’s directive that MTA hold a safety stand-down, and directing Metro-North to implement a Confidential Close Call Reporting System (C3RS) (Appendix 2). Additionally, FRA issued Emergency Order 29 and Safety Advisory 2013-08. • Emergency Order 29, issued on December 6, 2013, required Metro-North to take immediate action to prevent excessive train speeds by identifying and prioritizing highrisk areas, modifying its existing signal system to ensure speed limits are obeyed, and 1 requiring a higher level of engagement and communication among operating crewmembers in areas in which major speed restrictions are in place. • Safety Advisory 2013-08, issued on December 10, 2013, urged railroads to provide additional training, increase the frequency of operational testing, and reinforced the importance of communication between crew members. The purpose was to ensure that all railroads adhere to Federal regulations and railroad operating rules regarding maximum authorized train speed limits. On December 16, 2013, FRA launched Operation Deep Dive, an assessment of Metro-North’s operations and safety compliance. More than 60 technical and human factor experts comprising 14 teams, conducted a 60-day comprehensive safety assessment of Metro-North. With assistance from the Federal Transit Administration, these experts reviewed and assessed Metro-North’s safety-related processes and procedures, its compliance with safety regulations and requirements, and its overall safety culture. In assessing Metro-North, the Deep Dive team evaluated:...

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS Location 1. The fireplace may be hanged on any wall surface that can support its weight and where it can be leveled. As it does not irradiate any heat from the back and no rear clearances are needed. 2. The heater, which is located at the base of the fireplace, must be a minimum of 16 inches away from any combustible material. 3. It is important that the wall on to which the fireplace is to be installed is of sound construction. It is recommended that the brackets are installed directly into beams for support. But not necessary depending on the size and weight of the unit. 4. Yosemite fireplaces are approved for indoor use only. 5. The fireplace must be kept away from any source of damp or moist conditions. Avoid any close contact with water. 6. This fireplace produces heat. Consequently it is important to ensure that a suitable wall covering is selected behind and around the appliance. Typical wood frame drywall construction is suitable. 2|P a g e Installation Figure 1 1. Select the position of the fireplace on the wall to which it is to be mounted. Draw a level horizontal line on the wall at the required height. This line will correspond to the top of the fireplace so it is important to allow for the extra height of the glass face. 2. Mark the center line of the fireplace on to the horizontal line. 3. Place the Installation Plate along the horizontal line and line up the center “V” cut out with the center line. See Figure 1. 4. DRYWALL INSTALLATION Install screws into studs at 4 outside corner screw holes. If studs are not present, install self drilling hollow wall anchors at the 4 outside corners and find wood studs with at least 4 more screws on the mounting plate (two high and two low). Holes are offset to allow finding wood studs at normal spacing. Attach more screws into larger models as needed.

Real-estate legend Sam Zell said recently that the “End of Suburbia” might be happening. Right here and now. Of course, all the suburban dreck that was built in the last six decades isn’t going to vaporize. But, in terms of new construction — in other words, the real estate development business — reproducing the postwar, automobile-dependent Suburbia pattern is a money-losing proposition.
