NJ Transit said Wednesday that more rail cars and locomotives — 342 — were damaged by superstorm Sandy than originally thought and that the cost of the storm to the agency has risen to $450 million.
Originally, 323 pieces of equipment were reported as damaged and the costs of the storm was thought to be $400 million.
But even as the agency revised upwards its damage and cost estimates, officials could not say where the equipment would be placed if a similar storm were to occur in the near future
