Voyage of the damned on the Worcester Line
Desperate riders on the 5:35 p.m. train to Worcester were left wondering what they did to deserve the hell they found themselves in as they sat motionless on the tracks in Newton for more than an hour as inbound trains kept passing them.
At 7:08, the appropriately named Disgruntled Rider reported the train was still sitting in Newton - more than an hour after the train would normally be pulling into Natick.
A few minutes later, he added:
Was just told that we are now waiting for a third train to pass us. The train guy had to tell us in person... Because the PA doesn't work.
An exasperated rider, Rob, sighed:
At least he got off the train. We're still stuck. If I threaten to jump can I at least get off too?
Finally, at 7:29, he tweeted the train had started moving and was now in Wellesley, 110 minutes after it left South Station.
That's 3 inbound trains U let by while we sat 4 an hour. Do you hate me? Did I ever kick your puppy? Seriously, what'd I do 2 U?
