RE “WORCESTER express trip seemed to take forever’’ (Page A1, March 2): No amount of finger pointing, management reshuffling, apologies, or Band-Aid maintenance will fix the commuter rail problem. Imagine if every motorist drove a car that was built in the 1980s. Roads would quickly become impassable because of old, worn-out vehicles breaking down. That’s what is happening on the commuter lines. Until new or totally rebuilt equipment is placed in service, nothing will change.
