Transit Police say they are not amused by a kid's antics atop a hurtling Orange Line train yesterday morning. A spokesman says police are now on the lookout for him.
The kid, who goes by Jonathan Stay Wavey, posted the video showing him climbing atop the roof of an inbound Orange Line train somewhere in Jamaica Plain or Roxbury. It shows him avoiding a Darwin Award just before the train goes under a bridge and then doing a handstand on the roof before climbing back inside. The video, which he posted on a publicly accessible Facebook page, concludes with shots of some of his pals.
Erica Mattison saw this singer at Downtown Crossing today, thought he was wonderful, wonders if anybody knows who he is.
Around 9:15 p.m. a man jumped in front of an outbound Orange Line train as it entered Back Bay station.
The T shut power in both directions so that firefighters could extricate the man, who remained alert and conscious (photo from the platform). About 22 minutes later, firefighters got him onto the platform for treatment by EMTs and transportation to a local hospital.
Brandon Lerner was waiting for a train:
It poured, man it poured, in Somerville yesterday and once again, the new Assembly Orange Line station flooded. Or as Michael Femia, who captured the station apres deluge put it:
This is what a brand new multi million dollar MBTA stop looks like.
At 5 a.m. today, the MBTA opened the new Assembly station on the Orange Line (the first new T stop since the T opened the new version of the Orange Line south of Chinatown in 1987). Stuart Spina was on hand and captured Ruthy Rickenbacker becoming the first paying passenger at the station.

MBTAinfo notes you can tell the new Assembly stop on the Orange Line is almost ready for business because they've installed the benches and station-name signs, although hopefully Hulk smash neither.

Sebastian Zapata shows us the long lines at Forest Hills this morning as Orange Line riders try to add a month of value to their CharlieCards. It's not just that so many people do that as the fact that, as Kyle Geiste explains:
Weirdness on the MBTA machines at Forest Hills. Can't process credit cards. Long lines, employees tapping people through.
Some sort of electrical problem at Sullivan Square means the T is now busing Orange Line riders between Wellington and North Station.
