Anybody know what their experience has been?DC was built with many open air escalators (not even a roof over them). They've been plagued with problems (both exposure to weather and dirt, plus WMATA's lack of maintenance) and WMATA has been gradually building roofs over them as time goes on. You'd think this would have provided a valuable data point for consideration...
