Status Quo Commute

Well, at least all is well in the commuting world. My thoughts are with those people who worked for Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch.

Today's commute on the P508 was status quo. The Train arrived at 7:07 a.m. in Grafton and then at 7:22 a.m. at South Station.

In other good commuter rail news, the Metrolink accident would probably not occur on the MBTA/MBCR commuter rail line. WHYN reported that if Metrolink had the same safety features that are on our own commuter rail system, Friday's accident might have been prevented. Unfortunately, the safety sensors on the MBTA/MBCR commuter rail line are only on 2,600 miles out of 140,000 miles of track nationwide.

Gloucester Daily News published an article today about the Rockport MBTA Station.
