Around 530 p.m., a motor vehicle got up close and personal with both a bus and an E-Line trolley. Extensive damage to the car; no injuries. The Green Line is now suspended between Brigham Circle and Heath Street; riders are supposed to hop on a 39 bus instead.
Alex Cook made this costume for his nephew for Halloween.
I asked him what he was going to be for Halloween and he said, "A train!" and then immediately specified with "A green line train!!!" My sister had to tell him he was just going to be a normal train since she didn't have time to make one and couldn't find a green line train costume to buy. So I started on my quest with a $1.50 moving box and some duct tape.

On Oct. 21, 1996, after nearly a foot of rain, the Muddy River overflowed its banks and poured into the Riverside Line tunnel into the T stop.
Today, the T is stocked with sandbags, which workers pile in front of the portal whenever it looks like the normally sedate Muddy River might overflow again. And the current work along the Muddy River is aimed in large part at preventing another flood like that one.
