My thinking exactly (assuming that's what they're really doing)!

Of course the conductor getting on the horn and telling everyone the delays are due to "train traffic ahead", which is not only laughable but obviously wrong, doesn't speak much to their ability to accurately tell us what's up.

Agreed in all counts, but considering that one of the goals of the PTC and CBT systems are to increase the frequency (while also decreasing spacing) of trains, rush hour is probably the best time to simulate real scenarios. Evening service is spread too far apart to be of any usefulness.

But, yes, the delays are super annoying. I think this is an instance where a temporary inconvenience in the name of future improvements might be worth it.
