Full Moon Fever 10/18/2013
Train 1575: My train is held in Fairfield because the traffic is stopped ahead due to a trespasser walking in front of an Amtrak train. He refuses to get off the tracks. MTA PD have to remove him.
Train 1572: I plug my iphone in to charge and hide it under a seat across from my cab. Someone steals it (yes...again). Thanks to the "Find my iphone" app, and the MTA PD, phone is found sitting in a garbage can at Stratford train station later last evening. I guess an iphone4 is too passé.
Train 1988: A woman gets on the train and seems to have misplaced her 21 year old schizophrenic daughter. I spend the better part of the ride calling the rail traffic controller with a description, hoping they find her in Bridgeport (they didn't).
I realize that my hand-held radio is missing, and go to use the radio in the engineer's cab. Up ahead I see three guys sitting on a bridge abutment drinking beer. I yell "Watch out!", and the engineer blows the horn, and throws the emergency brake on. The men scurry to solid ground and we narrowly miss them.
