The trip was fine. Not a problem at all. Seems like a lot of people are off today, the Red Line from Grosvenor was not a problem at all at 7:40

East Falls Church had a switch or track or something problem, so at 7:40-ish Vienna was packed three-rows deep. The delay was relatively minor, but the train was sardine-packed before the tunnel.

I was on the first Orange Line train. Except for the seat hogs, it was fine. AC working well.

Don't Orange Line riders like the Tin Can of Molestation? They must keep coming back for some reason.
