During the winter months, snow and ice buildup on rail tracks and overhead contact wires can cause major disruptions to railway operations. Recent winter weather has truly put railways to the test, as extreme conditions ripple across rail pathways in North America. For passengers, icy train platforms can cause major safety concerns. However, there are a variety of heating solutions that can eliminate these costly problems.
Recent snowstorms have impacted transportation for millions along the east coast of North America. Among the areas affected by the inclement weather is one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, the New York City area. With weather disturbances comes the risk of mass transit systems like rail transportation being delayed and potentially being out of service.
