A break for Franklin riders?

On the last two days, the Franklin #715 has had a double-level coach in the place of one of the usual single-level coaches. The results have been startling. A few people have had to stand, but the number is far fewer than usual. I myself got a seat twice in a row at Ruggles, which was such an unexpected development that at first I didn't realize what was happening.

The riders I spoke to were delighted. We don't know if this is a permanent change, but we're certainly hoping that it is!

Charlie on the Commuter Rail,

Hi. I just found your blog. I'm a frustrated commuter who commutes in from Grafton on the Worcester-Framingham commuter rail line. I've also started a blog ( to voice my frustration with the commuter rail line and to try to incite some action from our elected state and local officials and local businesses.

I'm hoping that your experience on the Franklin line has improved (since you haven't posted in a while).

Thanks for voicing your opinions!
