It Really Happened – Dupont South Metro Station Opens

From WMATA:

Metro General Manager and CEO Richard Sarles joined local officials today to cut the ribbon on three new “transit-grade” escalators at Dupont Circle’s south entrance, marking the completion of an 8 ½-month project to improve reliability and safety for customers using the station.

Completed on time and on budget, the replacement project was necessary because the three escalators formerly serving the south entrance were among the least reliable in the Metrorail system. The original manufacturer had gone out of business and the units were “non-standard,” thereby making it nearly impossible to find replacement parts to keep them in service.

Now that these escalators are fixed which others would you nominate as among the “least reliable in the Metrorail system”?
