looking at each other and all realized there was something much more serious than what we wanted. >> governor christie lays the blame squarely on amtrak. he has written a letter to amtrak's chairman in which he asked specifically for nj transit to hold payments and i can percent until an independent investigation is done of the northeast quarter to make sure it is in a state of repair. he is also has new jersey transit senior officials to appear at stations to help commuters as they are dealing with this mess. i headed to the train station, showed commuters a picture of the head of nj transit and asked what would you like to say to him. >> i don't know why it's taking all of these states. we are getting to work late, i

and nj transit train derailed at the penn station knocking out a switch that mean eight of 21 tracks are no longer usable. the federal railroad administration is also responsible for the potential future of the northeast quarter line running from washington, d.c. to boston. let me show you the future what could be the future. if improvements up and on the traitrack could speed up commutg times, legal from new york city to washington, d.c. in one hour 40 minutes. make new tunnels under the hudson river. the federal railroad administration in december made a recommendation, they were looking at three. one included a second spine. i knew northeast quarter paralleling the existing with all up and down the eastern seaboard. if i would have been accepted, currently there are 21 trains per hour going into new york
city by regional rail. we would've expanded that to 54 trains per hour, a huge increase in commuters to get there. one of the federal demonstration is recommending doubles 242 trains per hour. a second spine was not worth its cost. the perspective on this, i talked to martin roberts, the former deputy executive director, he was one of the champions of the tunnel that governor chris christie shut down in 2010. he shut down the project to grab the money to fix the budget hole and not raise the gas tax. marty said that was a mistake. >> of that tunnel would have been built at would've given new jersey transit a completely alternative route as the trains came out of the ark tunnel they would have bypass this area. >> i asked who is to blame?
>> they had made the operating budget totally unstable. new jersey transit has several times been ordered, after saying they had a deficit in their budget, there were told by governor christie to go fix it. >> so frustrated about this. they're completely missing the mark. they may not get the gateway tunnel project but the point is a gateway tunnel project, the art project, they have nothing to do with overall safety of commuters. nobody has come up with a comprehensive plan yet. >> if this is the best they should all be fired. >> in the tunnel would improve safety because of those two tunnels over 100 years old fail, you think this was back, that would mean complete disaster for the northeast quarter. we need that tunnel. >> early today they told reporters the cause of the
duramed was a weakened railroad tie. amtrak has known about it for sometime i was planning on fixing it. they did not know how critical the situation was otherwise they would've fixed it sooner. the federal railroad mr. asian are concerned about the derailment and are bringing amtrak and nj transit together. that includes an inspection of the track infrastructure. we will keep following the story. tweet me on the show. >> a wise the curtain opened? i can't work in these conditions. >> the son, hallelujah, happens to be my favorite. but this student took it to a new level. >> here is a video that was posted to twitter that is going viral of her singing the song into a wishing well on a school trip in italy. ♪ >> ever her voice, i say hallelujah ♪

this and they get to sit on it. well, last night the borough council tried again and introduced another ordinance that could keep these it beaches at private playgrounds for people who live in the house is. >> i haven't found anybody home, these are all summer homes. i guess they put the doors on when they come back in may. >> the ordinance would require hundred dollar annual permits to park in the streets around here during the summer. and you can buy the permits, not just homeowners. critics say it's the same trick using parking rules to keep out the riffraff. >> there is a long history of trying to restrict access to fishermen, surfers, locals, anyone who doesn't live on the beach. >> the mayor, sam : said the town needs the permit prorogramo raise money. the newly widened beaches have
attracted so many people who act like slobs and litter, now they need to pay for trash cans and $150,000 sand drake to drive around the beach to pick up the litter. >> last year the beach was free on the crowds and the litter was out of control. >> at least one resident says the litter is coming from the summer residents who own these homes were now putting big tents on the beaches and having parties. >> i think this is an improvement upon people who pay taxes, we should be able to park our cars and look at the ocean. we don't have appeared, we don't have a boardwalk. that's all we have. [applause] >> people are using the beach, i don't think anyone, somewhat, but beyond the class warfare nonsense i think it's easy for people to throw out. if you're using the beach and have a trashcan i want to have your camping and fire, was people would have no issue pain
