RANT: Could somebody correct the spelling of the title of this thread (“Hardford”?!?). I’m a recovering former English teacher and Connecticut native whose father was a typographer, and it’s driving me bats every time I see it on my phone. (Getting rid of the Metro-North equipment (which will NEVER run to either Hartford or “Hardford”) would further improve my blood pressure.)
END OF RANT. Please forgive me - I have uncontrollable urges.

Mr. Fred. You showed that the psychology studies that say we can read sentences and phrases with each word four or more letters long incorrectly spelled are proven here. Until you showed that "Hardford" was incorrect in the thread title, I read it as Hartford each time and didn't notice the spelling. (Please don't correct any of my errors. I was a poli sci, government studies major, and we didn't have to be accurate, completely or partially correct, or make sense at work. LOL)

Thanks - headline within the thread is indeed correct, but it still shows up wrong on the iPhone app list of topics. I know you’ve done your best, so I’ll follow standard practice and blame Putin.

Food vending machines? In coaches?
Maybe resurrect the old New Haven Line Bar Car service on the Hartford Line...

Additional revenue enhancement...

I checked the website & didn't see anything about Conndot offering free rides, just free parking at some stations. Was there a special announcement on that or memo that I missed?

According to the Hartford Courant trains will run for free June 16 - 17, 2018.
John: You may have missed the memo; if you recall I mentioned it to you this past Sunday.
