A group of kids just boarded this #metra train, and the conductor is soliciting guesses from them about how many people are on this train.
Talking about #Metra: did you know that the #logo uses a #typeface named Crillee?
The italic wordmark is in use ever since the commuter rail system for the #Chicago metropolitan area got a unifying identity in 1985.
@fhardwig took a look at the #typefaces used in 1990 and 1991: https://fontsinuse.com/uses/55722/metra-tickets-1990-1991
It's so great that I have to go into the office today. Because instead of having a commute by train for 1 hour 10 minutes, I'm having a commute by train that is going to be 2 hours 30 minutes. And that's just on the way in. If everything goes well this afternoon it'll be 1 hour 30 minutes home, so for an 8 hour day I'll have spent 4 hours commuting instead of my "usual" 3 hours. I'm sure my day spent on Teams calls in the office is really worth it to the company. #frustrated #remote #wfh #metra
