It was announced this morning that the trains coming and going from the downtown railyard will be changing their schedules.

With this new schedule, the trains will be allowed to stop even more on the street you’re trying to go on, then put it in reverse for absolutely no reason, stop for a smoke break, and then continue on their way to and from downtown.

The schedule is as follows:

7:30am to 8:00am
12:00pm to 12:30pm
5:00pm to 5:30pm
10:00 to 10:30 (or just blow the horn right as you’re falling asleep)

It’s a bold strategy for the railyard companies, but it’s a risk they say they are willing to take at the moment.

“We are so excited. We get more time to stop in the middle of the streets and look at the lovely citizens sitting there admiring us.” said one rail company worker.

The much anticipated railyard development is scheduled to begin in 2018.
