Three trains died on the Red Line between 4:30 and 7 p.m. today.
I saw a Green Line train tear its pantograph off this morning while traveling on the "B" line.
I didn't know what a pantograph was.
at 5:30 the "experiencing delays due to a disabled train" message was playing, no location of the train though
In my experience, those messages can actually mean anything from "no delay" to "forget it and walk (or go home)".
In other words, the same as any other day on the T when there's no delay message.
Hey, at least we know that our government has assured us that among the countless thousands of passengers who were delayed last night, the dozen or so who had their bags searched were not carrying a bomb.
Aren't you glad your government is spending your precious tax dollars to ensure you have a smooth commute?
and full cavity searches, I guess they'll never really know.
Based on the Red Line T-Alerts filling my inbox, there was a disabled train at JFK/UMass at 5:30am, a second disabled train at Alewife at 8am, and a third at Kendall at 10:30am.
I am dreading this winter already...
Looks like I'm gonna have plenty of opportunity to find out how much I like bicycling in the snow and slush. :-/
I wonder if that was the same train repeatedly breaking? Yikes! Heavens to mergatroid!
