Riders have to be rescued from dead Blue Line train when power lines fall - again
For the second time in three weeks, plunging power lines brought the Blue Line to a halt in East Boston and left riders on one train stranded until Boston firefighters could lead them to safety.
A train near Airport station came to a grinding halt when the overhead power lines fell around 5:30 p.m. Shuttle buses are now running, according to the MBTA.
On Jan. 21, a similar incident stranded riders near Orient Heights and disrupted Blue Line service for much of the day.
