Dear PoPville – No Passenger Trains?

“Dear PoPville,

At the Pentagon City metro station, a no passenger train drove into the station. The first two cars were dark, but I could see large metal pushcarts inside. When the train stopped at the end of the platform, the doors opened, and men began unloading some of the carts from the front of the train. There was another man standing with what I thought was a gun in the last door of the second car. It was probably the strangest, and creepiest, thing I have ever seen. It reminded me of something out of like 1984. No one else seemed too worried or surprised. I imagine it’s routine, I have just never seen this before. Do you have an information?”

I believe the carts are used to collect the money from the ticket vendor machines. Anyone know if that is that right?
