Don't mind all these Penn Station photos. Bored. Was trying to go Belmont Park the other day. First post for the race: 1 p.m. Unfortunately, no one told this to the LIRR, who thought the first post was 3 p.m. So there wasn't a train for the 75 or so people standing around waiting to go to Belmont. Eventually, an LIRR manager type came out to talk to the group and offer an apology, but blamed Belmont officials for the snafu. Another train was promised, though after waiting an additional 45 minutes, we got antsy and left for plan B.
