Just a quick tale of encouragement and luck, fellow LDBCers.
The CTA calls it the Holiday Train. I call it The Boy on Wheels.
It certainly looks and sounds delightful enough. What’s not to like? A special L train all decked out with lights, elves, holiday décor, and merriment. That last part is important.
The merriment includes music.
I saw the murderous machine pull in and didn’t even consider running for it. I kept my distance and documented the atrocity, in fact. Then I caught the next blissfully unadorned train.
Nice try, North Pole.
