Since I was Off For Good Friday I Avoided Chaos at Penn Station


Thank goodness I was off from work yesterday as I missed the chaos in New York Penn Station caused by an NJ Transit train stuck for 3 hours in the tunnel followed by a stampede caused by a false report of an active shooter.  It turned out that the Amtrak police used a stun gun to subdue a disruptive customer.  I don’t know the circumstances behind this, but I can certainly understand passengers’ frustrations.  I likely would have missed it since the train was disabled about 3 PM.  I would have taken PATH to get to NYC from Newark.

What’s next?  Thank goodness, I will be retiring at the end of 2017 and will never again ride NJ Transit.
