Blue Line a mess after train derails

UPDATE, 4:30 p.m. The T reports regular service has resumed.

The T is warning Blue Line passengers to expect "significant delays" this afternoon following a train slipping off the rails at Orient Heights.

MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo reports the train was moving from the Orient Heights train yard onto the main tracks around 2:40 p.m., so it wasn't carrying any passengers. The T has swapped in buses for trains between Suffolk Downs and Airport.

Must have something to do

Must have something to do with the switches and the construction at the station. Man, it's been nice to blow through Orient Heights on my way home, lately. It makes the commute to Beachmont a few minutes faster.

Right now at Airport waiting for shuttle bus with what seems like 500 people.
