Never a dull moment on New Jersey Transit!

For a few more laughs, click on the story about the guy who drove his car under the platform and onto the tracks.

And guess what?  NJ Transit's veteran F40's are back in service!  Saw them myself last week.  Here's a vid. Full disclosure, not shot by me.
