They called an ambulance and firetruck to the scene. I have no idea why. Metra, why cant you get this door problem fixed?

Thank you for the tip. I'll look in to see why they sent the NFD out.

I don't understand this story. I took a train at route 59 at 8.30 and didn't see any trains stopped anywhere. And if it had been, why didn't the passengers jump into the train I was in?
