Usually the conductor announces over the P.A.:
Ladies and gentlemen, we're currently being held at a stop signal, once we receive a more favorable signal, we'll be on our way.
This gave me pause.
"A more favorable signal."
Ok, fair enough. And eloquent, I might add.
But, here's where I'm confused: What are the favorable choices, besides Green?
Are there more options? Is there a new system of lights, sounds, pictures and phrases to help us get over the Passaic?
One can only guess...so I did.
