FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — Metro-North's Bob McDonough last week got to try out musical conducting as part of his job as a train conductor.

Check out the link below to watch as McDonough interrupts the Yale Glee Club as they begin to sing "Here We Go A-Wassailing" aboard his New Haven-bound train last Friday.

Instead of asking for quiet, McDonough says, "We already did that one ... I'm the conductor, let me conduct."

"Somehow they bought it," McDonough said on his Facebook page. He taps his hole punch on the handrail as the choir breaks out with its version of "Carol of the Bells."

He finishes with a flourish, a bow and a smile to the camera. McDonough also thanked Greg Suralik (class of '17) and Nolan Crawford for recording and emailing the videos to him, which are posted on his Facebook page.
