Severe delays on the Red Line

An inbound train passed to the other side at Broadway; another train developed door issues at Charles/MGH.

Shawn Whitlock reports:

Just took 20 min to go from Broadway T stop to South Station. That's ONE stop. Bravo, MBTA, bravo!

Reverse

By on

Cant these trains move in both directions? I guess its just not that easy to go in reverse and get on the right bit of track again.

Haha

I think "passed to the other side" was meant as a euphamism here...

I took the train from Fields

I took the train from Fields Corner at around 2:40, it barely made it into the station and kept stopping till we got to JFK and were told it's disabled and to get off.

Damn red line.

I'm pretty sure these long delays happen less frequently than 20+ minute backups on the roads/highways.

That's damning with faint

That's damning with faint praise. I used to ride the Red Line every morning with hardly ever a significant delay. Seems like it's a daily event now. At least if you're in your car and you hear about a traffic backup on the radio (or see it in front of you), you often have the option of getting off the highway and taking an alternate route.
