    I am very happy that we will be getting cleaner trains, but just wondering why our government is paying for them? Shouldn't LIRR, the owner of the trains, be buying them? I understand that since the engines are old, they do not have to pass the more stringent, newer emission laws. But if the laws were changed then they would have to be upgraded by their owner or else they could not use them. If my car fails the state emission test, nobody gives me money to repair my car.
