Metro is granting this guy’s wish today.

If all is going well, a shiny new Metro train has already made its journey through the Red Line a time or two today. WMATA chose this line for the debut of its second eight-car train made up of cars from the 7000 series. It was to depart the Shady Grove station for the first time at 7:01 this morning.
The Post also suggests that this train is one way Metro’s trying to “make nice” with passengers who’ve put up with with a lot of breakdowns lately on Metro’s oldest and troubled line.
What do you think? Were you one of 7000-series’ first riders? Are you excited to ride?
