One Less Buttocks Clench

Check out WMATA’s new 6000 series rail car. Oh is the ride is sweet!

Starting last week, Metrorail will be adding them to the Green Line through the fall with other lines getting theirs in 2007 an onwards.

While I reviewed rail car 6037 in detail over at Live From the Third Rail, I know there are those at Metroblogging DC who will be ecstatic about one change in the 6000 series: less vertical poles in the middle of the car.

Why? Say goodbye to Mr. Lean Up Against the Metro Pole Man!

    Hah, I literally JUST returned to the office after riding in one of these. Ah, that new metro-car smell.

    I understand the logic behind the removal of the vertical poles, but I have to say I’m kind of worried, since I can’t reach the overhead bars to hang on if I’m stuck in the middle of the car. Where’s the love for the short people, I ask you?

    Tiff – did you look over here?

    Oh wait, that’s not love.

    Heh, that joke just never gets old, does it? ;)
