JJ Leslie was among the unfortunate who spent more than 30 minutes in a dead inbound Red Line train on the Longfellow tonight. He live-tweeted the experience:
9:01. MBTA Red Line inbound broken down just before Charles MGH. 30 minute downtime. At least we are not in the tunnel.
9:11. Stuck on the bridge. Now getting a push. One kid just took a leak in a cup. A few people freaked out. Swearing at driver.
9:12. A T staff in uniform but off duty stuck with us. He is trying to rationalze with angry people. Not working.
9:15. Now waiting in the cold for the next train. Lots of people.
9:17. I'd rather be driving a defective Toyota then be squished in this Red Line train right now.
Meanwhile, Greg Staples was on the train right after Leslie's at Kendall:
