Riders perspire when tracks catch on fire

A small track fire on the Green Line near Park Street tonight halted service and left some riders sitting on trains in tunnels.

At 8:36 p.m., Myron-Fletch Freeman tweeted:

Still trapped on Green Line train outside Government Center. And this city thinks it could host an Olympics .

That was more than 20 minutes after he first reported his trolley was stuck in the tunnel.

Meanwhile our elected politicians voted to waste $1 Billion dollars on the MCCA. Real smart! How about all the major upgrades for the stuff the regular people use?
