This morning's switch problems at 128 have morphed into signal problems at Canton Junction and so Keolis is warning of Trump-level (you know, yuuge) delays on the Providence and Stoughton lines.
The day after Keolis issued a statement about improved reliability on commuter rail, signal problems at South Station caused some major delays.

For at least the third time today, a Red Line train (probably not the same one, but who knows?) has flat lined, this time near South Station. Or as Yung Carl Jung puts it:

A touch of a trash fire on the Red Line tracks tonight. Quickly brought under control, but you know how that causes cascading delays up and down the line. Boston firefighters returned control of the tracks to the T around 8:50 p.m., but that brought no relief to riders because the train that may have caused the problem was stuck at Downtown Crossing. Instead, the T began corralling buses to shuttle riders between Park Street and JFK in both directions. Read more.

The Herald reports Keolis estimates the T loses $35 million a year in unpaid commuter-rail fares and wants to spend $10 million on new gates at North, South and Back Bay stations. No word on how much is lost on overcrowded trains that conductors can't get through to check tickets.
