Oh yeah, TVM II by jeff rose

I talked to a lightrail operator over at the Beaverton Transit Center tonight
and he told me
that they don't even call in and inform the control center when TVMs aren't
functioning- as I
said before- you can see the light flashing on the TVM from the train when they
working (especially at night). "They know they aren't working," is what he told
me! It sounds
like the root of the problem is inadequate staffing in the ol' maintenence
department, and a
general lack of concern in regard to the whole TVM problem. Jeez. I wonder why
we don't
have enough money to add a minute or two to some of these routes.
