02:19 pm - escaped from the davis square community
They're painting the bare concrete in the Davis Square T station while they go 'round installing the Charlie Card machines. This morning they'd already painted the short walls overlooking the train platforms from the mezzanine, and were working on the walls over the escalators on the College Avenue entrance. It looks as if now everything that's not brick will be painted industrial gunmetal gray.

How wonderful for the T! What a great use of money, manpower and resources! I mean, what with all the Davis station's problems -- continually broken escalators, leaking ceilings, fire alarms which may or may not be in use -- it's nice to see that the T thinks the highest priority right now, besides installing the Charlie Card machines, is putting a coat of industrial gray paint over concrete that's been around for nearly 25 years now without needing a coat of paint before.

Gunmetal grey, or ocean grey?

It might be a primer.

If it's primer, will they wait 25 years to put on the final coat?

I'm still dumbfounded by the whole Charlie Card/token mess from our visit to Boston, where we had to buy a Charlie Card to get on the system from the train station but had to buy tokens for every other trip we made. Governments would be brought down in Europe if someone did that.
