    The Type 7 green line cars (split windshield) are fare more comfortable to ride in. You side facing front or backwards instead of facing away from the windows. Easier to see your stop as well.

    Try and ride the Type 7 cars (Split windshield) its easier to sit facing forward or backwards instead of sideways like on the Breda cars.

    Waiting for a D train back to Riverside, watch inbound trains. D's turn here, others @ Lechmere. D's are labeled G center or Riverside. Sometimes they turn at Park, so wait 3-4 trains then go2 Park.

    Only the C and E trains go to North Station and beyond, the others stop here; so stop reading your copy of Twilight and get off the train....

    I bet WD-40 could make a powerful advertisement making the awful grinding sounds go away. Kind of like the Febreeze ads.

    It's great that there is a dunkin in the station but it's more expensive because of its convenience. You can go to the one just upstairs for cheaper dunkin!

    If you need the E line, it's usually better to pick it up at Gov Center than Park St (also more likely to get a seat).

    When taking the escalator up to ground level, keep moving. This particular escalator is too slim for two to fit side by side.

    Wear earplugs and mosquito protection. Or, jet out of there on the first train you can find and transfer at a better ventilated, less grindingly squealing station
