Riders of the L Train may have noticed brand new subway countdown clocks this week, complete with large screens and a light blue / dark blue color scheme. These new clocks are an upgrade to the 90s-era yellow-on-black LED screens. While new and updated, some are complaining that the color scheme makes it hard to read, and that you can only decipher the sign from certain angles. What do you think?

While the lettered lines are waiting for countdown clocks, do the L train stations really need theirs replaced already?
