What I would like to know when the Stoughton inbound trains will return to the pre-June schedule. Right now there is an 8:05 inbound and and 9:40 inbound with nothing between. Since I put my daughter on the school bus it now throws off my work schedule. At $186. per month I wish they could squeeze in another train ASAP between the above two time slots.

Yeah, there used to be an 8:28am train that was good enough for getting the kids off to school and then get to Stoughton station fast enough to park and hop-on that train. The 8:05am probably doesn't help commuting families very much.

I shulda known better ... I just checked the MBTA website and starting 09/12/2011 the weekday inbound morning trains are 6:28am, 6:56am, 7:48am, and 8:28am (plus others) so its nice to have the flexibility back.
