A Red Line train sighed its last, gave up the ghost, kicked the bucket, shuffled off this mortal coil, put its other foot in the grave, went the way of all flesh (metal?), cashed in its chips, went pining for the fjords, bit the big one, cashed out and just generally passed over to the other side at Downtown Crossing this morning. A T spokesman says:
Subway personnel had to couple it with another train in order to move it out of the way. This took about 25 minutes.
At 9:17, Alyssa Twomey tweeted:
They just unloaded the Ashmont train at Park to let us on and have it go back to Alewife. Eek, not a great sign.
