Transit Police are investigating two separate attacks with liquids this month - one at the Dudley Square T stop, the other aboard a T bus in Codman Square
Transit Police report arresting Derrek Toussaint, 29, on a charge of open and gross lewdness around 5 p.m. on Wednesday, after another man came out of the men's room at the Back Bay T stop to report Toussaint was masturbating there.
Jason noticed this note at the Park Street T stop today:
I love this. We could all use some kindness these days.
It's buses between Community College and North Station on the Orange Line this morning.
Oh, Sidney: Green Street became the last stop for an Orange Line train and now inbound riders get to sit or stand with no place to go.
Sarah Pekala shows us the aftermath of the two-car crash on Comm. Ave. at Sutherland shortly after 8:30 a.m. that resulted in Green Line trolleys having to just sit there.
Miles on the MBTA goes on a ride on a hydrogen-powered bus the T is trying out on route 109 out of Sullivan Square.
The dreaded "severe" delays are forcing Orange Line riders to hold tight due to a train that took a ride with Elijah between Wellington and Assembly.
An outbound Worcester Line hit a 59-year-old man around 6:20 p.m. at the Bacon Street bridge in Wellesley. He did not survive.
Foul play is not suspected, Transit Police report.
The investigation caused major delays in both directions on the line.
The MBTA advises us of "moderate" delays between Andrew and Harvard due to an unspecified "track problem." Liz Loveland, however, disputes the "moderate" part:
Delays severe despite alert claim of moderate. Train on standby for ages at Park with no room at all.
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:
I'm on #RedLine Braintree bound train #01868 rn & it's stuck in a tunnel. what the eff is going on?
Yet another Red Line train has departed this mortal coil, this time at Quincy Center. You know the drill.
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.
SC had a front-row seat for T workers trying to re-rail a trolley that fell off the rails at Boston College tonight. "Type 8, of course," he writes.
"Moderate" delays between Quincy Center and Braintree, the T advises. Its passing comes about 30 minutes after the T reported "minor" delays inbound on the Ashmont branch due to signal problems.
The Globe reports Keolis has put several workers on leave while it, the T and now federal safety officials figure out how and why they returned a train that had hit a barrier - with no passengers on board - back into service without repairs, which, of course, led to the train dying in the middle of the morning commute on the Worcester Line the next day.
