Metro-North Bar Car Survey Under Way

Commuters are being given a chance to weigh in on proposed designs for new bar cars on Metro-North with an online survey of riders by the state-appointed Connecticut Rail Commuter Council.

“Bar cars are an important part of many commuters’ lives,” said Commuter Council Vice Chair Terri Cronin of Norwalk. “We want to be sure that, as CDOT moves forward seeking bids on new M8 bar cars, they do so with riders’ input.”

Currently Metro-North’s eight bar cars are the only such cars in commuter rail service in North America. Though they have been recently rehabilitated, many hope new bar cars will be included in the state’s order of 300-plus new M8 cars from Kawasaki.

To see the proposed design and answer the 16 question survey, commuters can visit the Commuter Council’s Web site at and follow the link on the homepage to the survey site.

Their 32-foot sailboart Estrela emerged from the fog off Southport early in the day and Douglas and Kyle Hopkins and their daughters, Eliza, 15, and Abigail, 12, were greeted by Westporters Roy Dickinson, Douglas’s stepfather, and John Lascombe, aboard Luscombe’s boat The Bellpepper.

The welcoming boat escorted the travelers back to the Ned Dimes Marina where Douglas’s mother, Betsy Dickinson waited to welcome her family home. 

The Hopkins left Westport in November 2003, for what was to have been a two-year trip, but became a fantastic six-year journey. (See WestportNow June 17, 2010)

Arrival at the Levitt - The Video

The ABBA tribute band Arrival performed at the Westport’s Levitt Pavilion on Friday night to a capacity crowd.  Watch at the end as a man in the audience who had e-mailed the band in advance with a special request joins them on stage with his new fiance. He asked when they sang “I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do” would they announce that he was asking his girl friend to marry him. The couple, who would only give their first names—Stephen and Tundi—danced as they celebrated to the applause of the crowd. video by Helen Klisser During
