Re: Left Behind by the Nationís Largest Subway System

Lack of terminal personnel is definitely the problem. At one time, every terminal especially ones that required fumigation, had a staff of platform C/Rs who functioned not only to clear out trains, but also to set drum switches (for door control when trains were cut and/or added) and change signs when necessary. With trains no longer being cut or added in most cases, with the increase in electronic signs that don't require manual changing and with newer trains not requiring the manipulation of drum switches to set up C/R operating positions, the number of platform C/Rs at terminals has been greatly reduced and in many cases eliminated entirely.
