fun metra

Metra trains should have one car designated for entertainment.
* TV with movies or tv shows playing
* Live entertainment
* Board games, play a game of monopoly with a stranger
* Discussion groups with certain themes
* Vacation picture sharing
* Book club

Any other ideas? (and i’m not talking about the normal, bring a book or a cd player). It can just be so darned boring riding the dull train for an hour and fifteen minutes each way.

just one car? it would be MOBBED.

how about a nap car? where you post a sign outside the door indicating your stop, and the conductor would come by and wake you up in time so you wouldn’t miss it.

I remember reading something about the commuter trains out to Long Island having bar cars

definitly needs to be a doctor car… because then if something horrible happened they wouldn’t have to cause a chaotic mess of things by screaming “IS THERE A DOCTOR ON BOARD” they could just go to the doctor car grab the nearest one (who cares that he’s a proctocogist not a heart surgeon) and save the day……….unless of course there was a crash and though the entire train was in bad shape the doctor car was the most badly damaged and the doctors could not possibly help the others.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
