Precision Molding

When you leave for work in the morning, you never know what new experience Metro North Railroad has in store for its commuter... is it funky service, a poor designed train, or something strange in the air?

Sitting in my seat on the train home (car #8558), I got to see that tonight would be a design night highlighting that precision molding and quality control have not yet taken root with Metro North. The gap between the window and side molding is reminisent of US car manufacturing in the 1970s... perhaps we should have the Japanese build our trains as they've figured out how to make parts align.

Today's pics of where the panel meets the window:

  5. Left view showing that a pen could fit inside
  6. Right view that's aligned
