Memories. Maybe seven years ago, my wife phoned from a westbound train, where she and her friends were having an unusual rough ride on an M-7. I had seen them off, as they were going to the theatre. She gave me the car number. I phoned a complaint and warning to the LIRR. Somehow, I got a supervisor, who said (surprisingly) that I sounded like a knowledgeable railfan and took the train and car numbers before they reached Penn. I never heard back, that's okay. Later, I realized that any seat above a truck could be scary for the bounces and noise. When I ride alone, I usually choose a seat midway between trucks.
