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.

Orange Line snow plow

The T has hooked 80 of plows to the front of Red and Orange Line trains today to try to smash that demon snow away from the trains' air scoops so it won't short out the motors like it did so disastrously in 2015 (but just in case). Also, it will have a jet-powered Snowzilla like this to blast the snow away.

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.
