[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: They are saying the required parts
to rebuild what was lost in the fire are only produced at two
companies, both in other countries, and it will take months just to
get the parts. PAT]

When did NY and PA succeed?

From the NYT today:

"The two companies - Alstom Signaling Inc., based in Rochester, and
Union Switch and Signal, based in Pittsburgh - have been manufacturing
the electromechanical switches, known as vital relays, for at least as
long as New York City has had a subway."

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Well, my competitor the NYT *yesterday*
said it was going to take *years* to straighten out the mess and the
companies were both from other countries. NYT changed thier mind on
both these matters today, and blamed it all on the politicians at
the Transit Authority who had been 'confused'.
