Being a Smart Trip card holder and a frequent rider of the Red Line, to see those images of yesterday's horrific accident of the two Metro trains between Fort Totten and Takoma Park stations was a shock to the system. Both my wife and I watched the continued coverage on all of DC's networks.
I am no stranger to the Red Line as it was a life line at one point in my life to work and of course was a connector to the Verizon Center and many Capitals games at the Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro stop. It was a very shocking thing to see flashed on the television screen last night. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all my DC neighbors and their families involved in this unfortunate incident.
