acela brakes do not stop

ack! i’ve been taking the delta shuttle to nyc lately, but little did i know that amtrak stopped its acela service last week.

“Cracks were found on the disc brakes on most coaches during routine inspections, Amtrak said in a statement…”

I received a notice from Amtrak that they are replacing Acela service w/ Metroliner for the time being…which adds about 30 mins more to the commute. It will take them through the summer to resolve!!!

wow…amtrak’s already undergoing a tough time to reshape itself and figure out what it means to be a train in a plane world…

    Yeah, well, here’s a clue for Amtrak on that reshaping point. The key is having brakes that work. All the time. ;)

    I apologize for this unrelated question, but I cannot figure out how to find the RSS feed for livejournal.com. Is there one?

    This website is great.

    Thanks!
