Metro-North's leaf-zapping laser train gets a striking new look

Metro-North's innovative leaf-zapping laser train has received a vibrant makeover to enhance its visibility to the public.
This specialized train employs lasers to clear the tracks of hazardous, slippery sludge formed by crushed leaves.
The striking graphics on the train's exterior not only make it visually appealing but also ensure it stands out to passersby.
The leaf sludge, a common autumn challenge, can lead to wheel slippage and wear, resulting in delays and fewer train cars available for service. This technological solution helps mitigate these issues, ensuring a smoother and more efficient rail service
