You're assuming the phone in the trip station works... :)


That's why I mentioned the location of the other two.

None the less, it's all just the usual blabber to gloss over institutional ineptitude.

Can't disagree with that.

Adam Tuss is reporting that the rail was cracked from the bottom up and noted that it is highly unusual. Is that the case?
