Dead train at Reservoir around 8 a.m. means no inbound service, natch. And no announcements on increasingly crowded platforms, either.
Some commuter-rail passengers didn't fare much better.
Paul Levy provides the proof, with a video survey of the secret nip burial ground at Reservoir:
So far this morning trains have had to be taken out of service on the Red, Orange and Riverside lines. The E Line is stopping at Brigham Circle because of a car accident further up the line. No word yet from the Blue Line.
MBTA Transit Police report they are looking for a 50-something guy who keeps exposing himself to passengers on the Green Line at Reservoir:
It has been determined this subject frequents the MBTA Green Line “D” area and has exposed himself on more than one occasion and to several MBTA patrons.
Dead Orange Line train at North Station. Phil R. reports in from Reservoir:
No working signals & MBTA personnel at every stop between here and (at least) Newton Ctr. NOT A GOOD SIGN
Sean Haire captured the scene this morning at the Reservoir T stop.
This is not how I like to find out about service disruptions:
The MBTA employees on site were as surprised as I was - they had only found out about it shortly before my arrival.
Personally, I'm tired of waiting for the MBTA web site to become fully functional
