Just got off the Red Line and things seemed okay. Trains were running at normal intervals for rush hour, and there were no sudden or unexpected stops or delays. The train car I was in lacked air conditioning and was rather hot, but that’s par for the course. As far as I rode, it looks like WMATA managed to recover from the paper and cardboard scare pretty quickly. I’m glad for it, as I was able to get home in time to catch Endeavor STS-118′s successful sunset launch.
Of course, my trip doesn’t extend to the above-ground portions of the track which run slower on hot days. How’d that fare, DC commenters who had to go through it?
