If we were a third-world country, riders could just climb on the roof
Today's MBTA tales of woe come from the Franklin Line, where "mechanical problems" caused big delays and major crowding:
Suzie Mac, an hour late for work, reports:
Stopped at Norwood Central and train too full to let passengers on! Left them on the platform!
State Rep. Dan Winslow, a regular on the line, adds:
We're crammed on like sardines on Franklin train. Three train routes combined on one @mbtaGM? Why ^ breakdowns?
