Tuesday Inbound Commute

Ah, late fall in New England. The warmest part of the day will be this morning. It was a balmy 60 degrees out when I arrived at the Grafton train station this morning.

I noticed something curious on the train this morning. . . all of the doors on all of the cars were open. Hmmm, so either "safety" is no longer a concern OR the conductors are taking some heat for the reports published last week about their working strike.

Well, Train Girl is happy that all of the doors on all the cars opened this morning for the inbound commute. I just hope all the doors are open tonight for the outbound commute.

However, Train Girl is not happy that the Worcester inbound train still arrived to South Station 18 minutes later than it's scheduled. PLUS the conductors didn't collect passes this morning. So I wonder how many people got a free ride into the city? I should be reimbursed $7.75 because that is the cost of a one-way ticket from Grafton to Boston on the Worcester commuter rail line.

Take one step forward, but you're still going backwards.
