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.

The Green Line tunnels near Park Street are filled with greasy rags, grimy abandoned materials, and other filthy trash. It's no wonder that something catches on fire from time-to-time!

Smoke leads to panic, panic leads to injuries, between trash and discarded cigarettes, newspapers a small fire could cause major problems in the tube especially during the summer months.

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?
