A handful of early a.m. Westport commuters were left huffing, and puffing, and grumbling, when a Metro-North train pulled up on the opposite track that it was supposed to, opened its doors for about a half second, then slammed them as the would-be riders were bolting up the steps and hustling for the train.
In what must be the fastest station stop ever recorded in Metro-North history — rivaling an Indy 500 pit stop (did the doors actually open?!) — the train pulls away. Not one of the many passengers for the 5:47 out of Westport made it onto the train. Not. One.
Adding insult to injury, blog author Bob called Metro-North to offer up a big blast of WTF?, and was hung up on.
We can only hope our Westport-based correspondent, Saugatucker, was not among them.
