Finally: Legroom on the Trains

I’ve been commuting for over 20 years and my biggest complaint has been about the (lack of) legroom on the metro north trains.  I used to get to the train 10 minutes early just so I could get that “5th seat” in the 5-seaters so my knees wouldn’t be up against the next seat’s seatback.  I finally rode one of the new cars and am happy to report that there’s more legroom.  My knees don’t hit the seat in front of me.  Finally, something good from Metro North.  I’m not sure why no one has reported on this.  Now if only I could hope to get on one of the new trains more often then about 1 in 15 trips…
