    This: “Metro trains did not share a track on the Blue and Silver lines this morning.”

    I do not understand what this sentence means. Is this about this morning’s single tracking?

      I first read it as the trains didn’t want to share.

      Thought maybe they were in need of a timeout. 🙂

        Meanwhile, I love WMATA’s alerts on it, “Due to fire department activity.” It’s like they’re blaming the fire department for the problems, not the system lighting on fire again. Those crazy, kooky firefighters making us all late for work!

      The Post article that she took this from was referring to the exact opposite of “did not share a track…” In actuality, the trains were forced to share a track–e.g. single tracking. But Ken Plum once took the Metro to Tysons so he things Metro needs dedicated funding without any tangible reforms.

        Metro and Ken P need to be committed!
