Fend For Yourself!

The bars on what used to be the ticket window at the Westport train station are harsh enough.

But then you see the sign:

RR tickets

Yep. Tickets are sold on the platform. In “fending” machines.

Good service!

Pimp My Electric Ride

Back in the day, Westport was an artists’ colony.

These days, we’re proud of our environmental chops. You can charge your electric vehicle at a variety of places around town; earlier this month we hosted a large electric car rally.

Over the past week, art and e-cars have met. Here’s the scene at the northbound side of the train station, next to the charging stations:

The front passenger window says “Electric rules.”

We’ve come a long way from VW flower power vans.
