    Just go ahead and put plenty of money on your SmarTrip card. Took many people don't know how to use the machines and it takes awhile to get to it.

    The station entrance by the Castle is closed in the evenings, so you'll need to walk a couple of blocks to the other entrance.

    Not the place to refill your farecards or smartrips on the weekend. The lines are long and consist of clueless tourists.

    Welcome to Washington, tourists! Enjoy your time here, and please, stand to the right, walk on the left, and if the escalator is broken (like it was today), just walk. :)

    Wear deodorant, I visited the area and had the unpleasant experience of sitting next to someone that chose to bathe in their own sweat before boarding the train.

    If you are visiting from out of town, please respect local custom and stand to the right on the escalators.

    If you choose to stand on an escalator, it is courteous to stand on the right so others may walk on the left.
