Bright as a New Penny

The E train home from Midtown tonight was new, like the N or the L. It was disorienting to hear the calm, cogent voice of the prerecorded station announcements. (It was distracting to be able to understand the voice at all.) It’s the female voice of the N train, not the male voice of the 4/5/6. And I swear that train traveled faster and smoother than the old model.

The seats are blue and clean. The video monitor shows the bright blue “E” circle. The LED display clearly shows the next stops. The windows are not all scratched up. The floor is already scuffed … but I’ll let that pass.
