Jenny Farrell spotted this bunny on the B Line last night (note cat as well).
The countdown sign at Boylston eastbound (inbound) was activated earlier today. Read more.
UPDATE: Tree removed, service resumed.
The T is shutting the Green Line between Fenway and Reservoir at 11 a.m. so workers can remove a large tree that is now leaning dangerously close to the overhead wires near Reservoir. Expect a two-hour shutdown.
Because substitute bus service will be limited, customers are strongly encouraged to use the closest stations along the Green Lineâ€™s C branch (Beacon Street).
Bus service will be available for persons with disabilities at Reservoir and Kenmore Stations.
A concerned citizen complains:
Rotating gate at park street that facilates the exit from inside the subway to the outside. It's extremely hard to push it. Elders and many others will not be able to push it. Needs to be fixed. Citizen here in action!! ;)
A trolley that clang, clang, clanged its last this morning is causing grief on the Green Line. At 8:05 a.m., Matt Hrono reported:

The Herald reports state officials now think extending the Green Line through Somerville might cost upwards of $3 billion - and the federal government has only committed to $1 billion of that, and might take that away if state officials can't figure out how to pay for the rest, which apparently they're have trouble doing.
7:18 AM and summer is officially over. On a train with 40 BU Freshmen all wearing lime green orientation tshirts
The T is reporting some ish on the C Line, where an inbound trolley eased into eternal slumber at Summit Avenue just a tad before 8 a.m.
Outbound riders on the Riverside Line had to board buses for the ride between Reservoir and Riverside this morning due to your basic generic "power" problems. The T says it's fixed now.
UPDATE: Service restored at 3:30 p.m.
The T is telling B Line riders to take the 57 bus instead between Kenmore Square and Packards Corner, due to a trolley with wheels that no longer fully rest on the tracks.
Tim Lawrence photographed an entrance to the inbound side of Symphony station that had been buried in the 1970s, but which re-emerged in 2012 and again this week as part of an ongoing construction project.
Another view: Read more.
A Braintree train pulled into JFK/UMass and then just sat there because the doors refused to open. Finally, workers figured out how to get people off the train.
Meanwhile, Josh Jacobs reports from a daisy-pushing trolley just past Longwood on the Riverside Line:
This ride on D line trolley 3603 is The Braking of the Riverside 1-0-3 (A.M. at this rate).
OK now someone playing Star Trek opening theme and totally trolling.
