How long will we wait for the train?

Yeesh, more problems with Veolia! Are we sure this is the contractor we want running this train? The evening schedule testing of MetroRail, which we had taken as a sign of progress, has come to a halt. According to a Capital Metro spokesman, a "question regarding some of the insurance coverage did come up during recent contract negotiations with Veolia." He couldn't elaborate, saying details of contract negotiations are confidential, but that "we felt it was prudent to hold off on running train tests until we have a better picture of the coverage."
