LED message boards for hearing impaired

Postby metraupwest » Fri Jan 01, 2016 2:24 am

While riding on board Metra last week I noticed the LED visual stop announcements were no longer active. Even the signs on the cars have been removed. Could anybody clue me in on what's happening with that? I thought this was required as part of ADA?

They were working on 8524 this morning. I did notice that the "hearing impaired" sticker has been scrapped off a number of the 85xx cars.
