I wasn't exactly heartbroken over this week's news that Metra is eliminating bar cars on its trains. I hope it will cut down a little on the number of out of control drunks. It might reduce the noise level on trains.
What I'd really love to see is a designated quiet car, for those of us who would like to read, or sleep, or simply have a quiet ride. If you like this idea too, please send a letter to Metra Passenger Services. They won't know unless we tell 'em.
