Green Line

By - 2/10/17 - 9:54 am

The T says service was pretty durn good on the four subway lines thanks to all the investments in things like new third rails and plows and dispatch centers.

So far this morning, the T has reported Red Line problems that include dead trains at South Station and near Ashmont, signal and switch problems on the Braintree branch and at Park Street. Green Line trolleys ran even slower than usual on the C line.

But as of 9:50 a.m., the T says everything's back to normal.

The T says Green Line trolleys will just zip through Kenmore starting in the third quarter of the Super Bowl and that the 8, 57 and 60 buses that normally stop at the station will also bypass the square.

The T says it's shutting down service at Kenmore at the request of Boston Police, who are taking a number of steps to keep possible Patriots celebrations in the square from getting out of hand.

UPDATE, 1:25 p.m. The T will run buses instead of trolleys between North Station and Lechmere for the rest of Friday as it works to fix the signal problems.

The T is reporting "moderate" delays due to an Orange Line train that kicked the bucket somewhere between North Station and Ruggles. And signal problems on the Green Line at North Station mean it might take you less time to walk between there and Lechmere.

Via e-mail this morning, we got a photo of some some graffiti in an elevator at the Park Street T station that seems to indicate the author's carefully considered desire to build a wall to keep out Section 8 recipients. Our correspondent reports he notified the T, which promised a cleanup crew was on the way.

If you want to see it.
