Dr G--

I noticed in today's chat (and last week's) you made a comment (relating to herky-jerky Metro rides) along the lines of: 'The longer the (Metrorail) conductors operate in manual mode, the better they will get.'

Ummm, it has been almost a year. If a conductor hasn't figured out how to operate a train in manual mode by now, it isn't going to happen.

If the mixed trains truly are the problem, then go back to old system. I think there are serious questions out there, anyway, about whether sandwiching the 1000 series cars is really any safer than running them as an entire train.
