Broken trolleys on the Green Line, borked signals on the Orange Line, non-functioning lights on the Red Line at Park Street. But at least the Blue Line was working just fine.
Oh, and don't be so smug, morning drivers: Storrow inbound was FUBAR.
Has anyone ever figured out why this happens on such a regular basis? Without fail, seemingly every, or most, Monday mornings, the T has problems. It's not like the T doesn't run on weekends and then suddenly has to sputter back to life after being dormant. What goes on?
currently work for Metro-North in New Haven, it is often because when it goes from Sunday night, which has the least service of any period in the MBTA schedule, to the hardcore rush of Monday morning, trains that have been sitting all weekend often immediately run into problems. At the same time, things like signals and lights IMMEDIATELY crack under pressure. It happens here in Connecticut as well, though nowhere near as bad as back in Boston.
