Times they are a changin'

Why the schedule change I asked a uniformed personnel at Penn Station this morning. After shooting me a half annoyed, half confused look, the woman answered: "Because it's time for a change." When I pressed her for more specifics, she acted exasperated and finally answered that the new schedule was a regular, twice annual occurrence. Hmmm, I don't remember two schedule changes last year.

A more friendly MARC conductor told me that changes were due to adjustments in the schedules of a few afternoon trains that were conflicting with Amtrak.

Two very different answers...I'll try to get a MARC spokesperson on the phone this afternoon for an official explanation.
