Maybe by 2018, we'll have a functioning Metro system in DC again.

MAYBE.

Yup, have to laugh. In 1976 had AIT training at Fort Belvour and went on the tour of the new metro. Was in the control room and with the so called automated controls, where having trouble with just two trains. That said the underground stations were nice.

Hey! I was in that control center once, too, sometime in the early '80s while doing an analysis of Metro's electric consumption.

On a positive note, my son and his girlfriend rode the Orange Line from Virginia Square to Federal Triangle and back yesterday without incident. That's a start.

EDIT: Steve, Metro only opened in 1976 and was limited to 5 stations and about 5 miles of track. I'll give them a pass for any problems they had in that era.
