Safety train

I’m passing along the following press release from Metro for those who might be interested:


WHAT: The NEW METRO will unveil a rail car wrapped in a bumper-to-bumper decal promoting safety along rail lines.

WHEN: 9 a.m., Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2011

WHERE: METRO’s Rail Operations Center, 1601 W. Bellfort St.

WHO: METRO Board Chairman Gilbert Garcia; METRO Board members Judge Dwight Jefferson and Allen Watson; and, METRO President & CEO George Greanias. Joining METRO are special guests Houston City Council members Brenda Stardig and Wanda Adams, and Houston Police Chief Charles McClelland and other local law enforcement representatives.

WHY: Safety is one of the seven operating principles of the NEW METRO. This wrapped rail car encourages motorists and pedestrians to exercise caution along METRORail tracks and freight tracks throughout the region.

Here’s a map to the location if you need it; it’s basically a block west of the Fannin South station.
