Gallery Place, somewhere around 6:15-6:30, a Red Line train towards Shady Grove had some trouble with the onboard lights; after pulling into the station and opening the doors, a loud “BANG!” was heard, and smoke began billowing from the undercarriage of the second car of the train. Unfazed, Metrorail personnel inspected the train, directed everyone to re-board it, and sent the train along inside of ten minutes.

O, glorious day! O rapture unforeseen!
