  • Willie Reston

    Everyone knows the correct pronunciation is “Willie Reston”. That’s how all the conductors say it.

      Right before they slam on the brakes right before the platform, inch forward, slam on the brakes again, inch forward again, slam on the brakes, then accelerate a whole lot to get to the end of the platform before slamming on the brakes again.

      I love the metro.
