Lucky fellow. On a semi-related note, I almost took the Needham line to Boston tonight, but it was too cold, and the 37 bus was right there...lucky I did, I'm sure the train got delayed.

I live in Needham (and can hear the trains). I wondered why all the trains were so close together last night. Glad this person is relatively ok.
