Boy am I glad I work near my house...

It's summertime and that means MARC Penn Line equipment is crapping out and people are getting stuck on trains.

This happens EVERY year on the Penn Line. And there's a pretty simple culprit:

MARC bought the wrong type of locomotives for the climate.

To my knowledge, nowhere else on earth are the HHP-8s exposed to high humidity and high temperatures like they are here.

If you have to work in DC and take MARC, all I can suggest is to take the Camden Line in during the summer.
