I enjoyed myself at the CED show last week in Long Beach. As always it's nice to travel and see industry friends! For those of you who attended the event thanks for taking time out of your busy day to visit! There were over 50 news stories that sprung up in the news this past week, many of which dealing with transit systems across the country. Next week is our prize pack giveaway, so stay tuned, sign up for the e-newsletter and listen at the end of the show to see if you won. We're giving a way an MP3 player. Perfect for taking the show on the road! For those of you residing in the United States, Monday is Memorial Day, a day to remember all of those who have died who have served our country, the United States that is. Take time out of your day on Monday to thank a Veteran and take a moment to remember those who have sacrificed so much. (Pictured Right: Fake Counterweights, click here for more photographs of this interesting elevator. These are on the outside of the building and go up and down but are not functional!)
