Green and Red: Trains are dead.
It just wouldn't be a morning without at least one dead train on each line, no?
UPDATE: Another Red Line train died at Harvard around 5 p.m. Of course.
There's a dead trolley on the Riverside Line and an Orange Line train was emptied at Community College around 3:30 p.m.
A man charged with "upskirting" a woman on the Green Line in 2010 - and captured the next day by a decoy T cop in a skirt of her own - wants the Supreme Judicial Court to toss the charges, saying the law used to prosecute him was only meant to protect women in the shower or dressing rooms, not to people practicing the First...

Anna Sims reports what the driver of her Green Line train said:
This train is having issues, I'm not sure it will get you where you're going.
Perhaps she's on the same train as Mark, who reports:
20 minutes to go 5 stops on the b line. I know I shouldn't expect much of the b line but yikes,
Both the Green Line... Read more

Two trolleys are groaning and just refusing to get up, one at Newton Highlands and one in the tunnel between Hynes and Copley.

The morning starts with a dead train at Wellington on the Orange Line, a dead Green Line trolley somewhere on Huntington or South Huntington and a dead train outbound at Maverick on the Blue Line (say, aren't those the T's newest and freshest subway trains?).
The very first dead-train alert of the morning showed up at 5:23 a.m. for a train at Ashmont that just refused to throw off the covers and get up (and it was followed not long after by a similar report of a recalcitrant trolley at Coolidge Corner).
The deceased train is at Harvard; platforms at other stations are filling rapidly.
Green Line trolleys, meanwhile, died at Coolidge Corner and near Copley Square.

One at North Station, one at Reservoir, both making life more interesting for morning commuters.
The MBTA has replaced the applique of Chicken and Beer Guy with Jon Lester at Kenmore station just in time for tonight's game - and a day after somebody complained about the old homage.
Take, for example, this story about a couple who need to replace their home's siding, which requires turning off power to the Riverside Line, which in turn has infuriated some neighbors worried about being unable to get to sleep.

A B trolley and a car collided around 7:10 p.m. at Comm. Ave. and St. Paul Street.
It looks like everybody is fine. Surprisingly because the train hit the driverâ€™s side of the car.
The T's broken out its "severe warning" alert this morning for the Riverside line, whose riders are being asked to seek alternate means of transportation between Riverside and Reservoir due to a wire that has discovered it's subject to the law of gravity.
The T assembled buses for a relief effort. Not long after, riders on the 57 line started reporting delays as some of... Read more
Mr. Eggcorn reports this car on South Huntington Avenue was hit at least three times today by other cars sliding on the trolley tracks, driven by people who don't realize why that's not a good idea, at least, not until it's too late.
Happens all the time when it rains.
Look who John Gates ran into on the Green Line tonight.
A dead train at Park coupled with a medical emergency means Green Line commuters are not smiling this morning.
