In regard to the pending changes to the MARC train schedule, Delegate Michael Hough is no doubt correct in his assessment that his train-riding constituents likely share his chagrin about the later arrival times of the Brunswick line trains. What concerns me, however, is the way he would like MARC to remedy this problem by eliminating the smaller stops in Montgomery County. If Delegate Hough were more concerned about his constituents and less about his personal inconvenience as a rider from Brunswick, he’d be aware that a good percentage of the folks that utilize two of the smaller Montgomery County stations actually reside in Frederick County.
