I am about to move into a house near Irvington. It has been suggested to me that I would be better off commuting to Grand Central from Tarrytown as it has express trains which will get me there much quicker. This has me slightly stumped, because according to the Metro North schedules, the fastest train into GCS in the morning from Irvington is 40 minutes, and the fastest from Tarrytown is 38 minutes. As Tarrytown is about 3 minutes further away from my house than Irvington, I cannot see what I am gaining (other than that Tarrytown has more frequent trains). I am therefore wondering if the train timetables are masking the reality and in fact the local trains from Irvington generally take much longer than the schedules say? Could anyone familiar with this commute share their experience.

Sorry – I know this is an unbelievably dull question!!!
