  • Name the station in the pic!

  • Three weekends, and no curtailment for Wiehle-Reston yet. Track work between Stadium-Armory and Addison Road, but they are making Blue Line suffer with 24-minute headways instead of the Silver Line.

  • Last weekend Metro advertised normal service on the Green, and they were single tracking between College Park and Greenbelt, which meant a half hour added to my trip. Boo.
