Rooms with a view

northern exposure

W/O Chris Martin contemplates one of the rooms in the new elevated station. The ones with windows are allocated based on seniority. Behind those two dressers is lots of storage space for beer, orange bags, or whatever. Some of the rooms have demountable partitions allowing for double rooms for married couples; however it seems that the beds don't hook together all that well, and the demountable partitions weren't exactly soundproof. Fortunately my 2005 room had real walls.
