Zone 20 is the 0, Zone 21 is New Haven, so most guys either use the 1 or flip the seat check upside down(like me). Zone 31, just a seat check down, no punch, it's not that busy, you can usually just eyeball them as they get on. Don't work the Danbury or Waterbury, put I would think it's pretty much the same.
Maybe they just have very good memories, or some mental tricks.
Depends on the the train. On some trains if it's an express you might just seat check "heads" or "empties". Sometimes you put seat checks down just to make it look like you're actually keeping track, but really you're just randomly putting them down.
