I read with surprise Saturday's article about the changes to the MARC Penn Line service ("MTA plans new schedule for MARC Penn Line," Feb. 12). MARC is the most disorganized railroad I have ever seen. Management's proposal to reduce the number of cars per rush hour train and add a few trains to reduce the load on the engines is ludicrous. Management admitted that they don't even know if the length of the train is the problem.
I ride on train 407, which departs BWI at 6:37 a.m. and train 534, which departs Washington at 5:20 p.m. Both of these trains are standing room only. Reducing the number of cars is going to make the overcrowding much worse unless the additional trains depart less than 10 minutes before these trains. Without a fourth track, adding additional trains will only increase the existing congestion on the Penn Line.
