Red Line kind of a turkey, service all slow and jerky

UPDATE: Then the signals went on the fritz between Central and Kendall.

A train that had to be taken out back and shot at Charles/MGH is getting Red Line riders all grumbly.

Christina Visconte reports:

inbound #redline train continues to stop in between stations for ten minutes at a time. No updates from conductor. Going on 45 minutes

Michelle Moran ponders:

Close to @MBTA #redline BINGO. 2day a disabled train at Kendall. Earlier signal issues. Tmrw, med emergency or police action?

But, wait, it gets better. The fire alarms at Park Street are going off:

    The T's had a lot of issues

    By on

    The T's had a lot of issues with station fire alarms lately. During the evening rush one day last week they were going off at North Station.

    As usual, no T employees anywhere to be found.

    One of these days there's going to ACTUALLY be a fire in a T station and someone's going to be killed because they're used to all these false alarms and don't realize there's actual danger this time! Fire alarms lose a lot of their effectiveness if there are frequent false alarms that are ignored.
