NJ Transit plans to harbor 300 trains near the closed General Motors plant in Linden during future monster storms like Hurricane Sandy, which flooded rail yards in Kearny and Hoboken and damaged hundreds of cars.

The idea was floated Thursday near the end of a breakfast gathering of transportation professionals in Newark, which grew contentious when NJ Transit’s head of rail operations told an attendee who baited him that he had no plans to resign over the waterlogged trains.
