Yesterday, a Red Line train died on the outbound tracks near Charles/MGH. Today, a Red Line train's dead on the inbound tracks near Charles/MGH. The word of the day is "severe," the T advises.
There's a reason the Revolution started here, it seems.
A Red Line train came up lame at Charles/MGH outbound and now the MBTA is reporting "moderate" delays.
An Orange Line train stopped at North Station and refused to budge, but the T reports it made it budge and now things are back to normal on that liine.
The Massachusetts Vision Zero Coalition posts their answers to a questionnaire side by side.
The MBTA reports a dead train somewhere near Tufts Medical Center means "severe" delays towards Oak Grove (which, of course, will eventually mean problems towards Forest Hills, especially since Forest Hills is down to just one track). That means every single T line had a dead train this morning. Is there a prize for that?
A Red Line train that pulled into South Station refused to leave and now there are "minor" delays on the line, the MBTA announces.
The Red Line is once again going slower than it usually does due to the Davis Square signal problem that first cropped up before yesterday's morning rush hour.
The MBTA is advising Red Line riders to set aside some extra time for their evening commute because the morning signal problems at Davis have become the afternoon signal problems at Davis.
The T's not so bad and reporters just risk scaring away the giant retail companies that want to bring 50,000 jobs here, Hizzona tells MassLive.
The MBTA reports "moderate" delays on the Orange Line towards Forest Hills due to a train giving up the ghost at Downtown Crossing, which has apparently become the go-to place for Orange Line trains that have lost the will to live.
The T says it's gotten the track-repair equipment that gummed up the Red Line at Andrew off the tracks, but that the Orange Line is still having problems due to an Orange Line train that bought the farm earlier at Downtown Crossing.
The train has since been taken to the Red Line equivalent of a glue factory and service on the Ashmont branch is supposed to be OK now, the MBTA reports.
A T bus on Centre Street in West Roxbury is hardly unusual. But this bus was parked outside the Gormley Funeral Home, its signboard alternating between "John Linso #6808" and "Rest in Peace."
Linso, 52, of West Roxbury, was a 28-year MBTA employee. He died last Thursday. Visiting hours are today.
