Rooms with a view

northern exposure

W/O Chris Martin contemplates one of the rooms in the new elevated station. The ones with windows are allocated based on seniority. Some of the rooms have demountable partitions allowing for double rooms for married couples; however it seems that the beds don't hook together all that well when the partition is removed, and the soundproofing of the partition (when installed) isn't that great. Fortunately for my 2005 winter I had a room with solid walls (and quiet considerate neighbors. Hope I was the same, Erik and Dana :)
