  1. I have a very good app on my cell (Moovit) that notifies me of problems on other trains that I am not interested in (like the Blue line); it would have been nice to know about the Gold line delay (signal problem) at the Sierra Madre station this morning.

  2. Funny how this info is never displayed on the variable message machine at the affected station, much less at others along the very same system.
