Crowds at Park Street on the Red Line

5:50 p.m.: Residual delays meant throngs long after service resumed. Park Street photo by William Engels.

UPDATE, 5:10 p.m Trains began rolling again.

It's rarely a good sign when the fire department shows up at a T stop, and this afternoon will not be the exception that proves that rule. A track fire about 20 feet inbound from Broadway station shortly after 4 p.m. brought firefighters to the platform and a shutdown of electrical service so they could take care of business.

The result was "severe" delays on the Red Line, again.
