Seinäjoki is witnessing a wave of development, and the city recently made a huge investment in building its own metro system inspired by the West Metro in Helsinki! After all, every self-respecting city has a rapid transport network of its own. Unfortunately, much like the one in Helsinki, this project did not turn out quite as planned. The train does not go all the way to its intended destination; instead, it only runs to the end of the local metro line in the remote village of Peräseinäjoki. In addition to all of that, the tracks end there because a rare type of rock inhabited by a protected species of crow was discovered on the planned route during construction. The train is stuck at this dead end because nobody thought to include a reverse gear. “From what I hear, the insurance company and inspectors are still looking into it,” says the driver, resting his feet on the control panel. However, there’s no need to worry, because there is a way out: a regular local bus service connects this remote metro station to the city, and it runs every week! This week’s bus leaves in one hour. The alternative *whispers* is to stay here trapped with the local country bumpkins.
