The State House News Service reports that our more winter-resilient Red Line was felled last week by "residual dew" turning into ice on the tracks south of Boston. Also at fault, the T acknowledges: Superannuated trains that looked up, clutched their chests and wailed "I'm coming, Elizabeth!"

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:

Rick Macomber posts some video showing a car whose driver went around some a down and flashing crossing gate in Revere last night, only to have the back half of her car immediately taken off by the commuter-rail train that was the reason for the gate to lower. The driver and a passenger got out OK, but for some reason they decided not to wait around for police.

Track is whack at Packards Corner, so the T is hauling B Line passengers between there and Washington Street by bus. On the Red Line, there's a dead train just moldering somewhere on the tracks between JFK/UMass and Braintree.
