Montgomery County Leaders, Metro Resolve Issues With Silver Spring Transit Center, Eye Fall Opening

Montgomery County and Metro resolved their outstanding issues related to the troubled Silver Spring Transit Center, according to the county's point person on the project, and leaders are confident the structure will open in early fall.

"(Metro) told us that there are no issues with operating this facility and taking it into their possession," Director of General Services David Dise told News 4. "They will own it in August, but when they open it for operations is likely to be in September."

They need to skip the announcements. They dramatically increase the amount of time the train loiters at every stop.

Audible announcements made before the door opens are still ADA-compliant.

Most operators just cancel the automated announcements and make their own manual ones. It's faster that way.

Are the LRT numbers right? Sure its not 28,900? Previous averages were all around 27,000ppd. Anything that would've caused a huge dropoff like that?

I'm not sure you'll have to ask on the Baltimore forum.

Some recent videos from Trainman1971

Washington Metro: A 7000-series Peek



Along The RF&P Sub - Part 4: Trains, Planes, and... Trains

Quote:
September 8th, 2015
Shot from Long Bridge Park alongside "RO" interlocking, ten trains passed by during the 3pm to 4:30 time frame. I selected 8 of those trains to document on this video clip. VRE trains dominate the scene, along with Amtrak's Silver Star and a southbound Regional with Phase I Heritage unit #156. One unidentified CSX freight makes an appearance as well.

As my location was less than a mile from the end of the runways at DCA (Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport), there was plenty of aircraft action to be had as they made their final approaches, as you will also see in this clip.
