The T

By - 1/6/16 - 7:45 am

Or as Shuchi M puts it:

Woot, they cancelled two trains, brought a smaller train than usual, and made the express a local. Where did the fare hike money go MBTA?

Weber King got caught in the "total chaos" exiting the first Garden event since the T entrance on that side of Causeway closed, forcing thousands of people to cross the street to get to the subway:

Yeah, this isn't gong to work, at all. Need a plan B ASAP.

The T advises there are "moderate" delays on the Red Line towards Alewife due to an unspecified track issue at Central.

It's buses between Ashmont and JFK/UMass because of track ish at Savin Hill.

The Green Line was hampered this morning by trolleys that approached the pearly gates westbound at Haymarket and inbound at Woodland.

Both the Haverhill and Greenbrush lines are having "track" issues this morning; in the case of the Haverhill Line, that involved an out-of-service train derailing. One Haverhill train, the 204, left Andover like 45 minutes late. Tim the Enchanter reports:

I'm sitting on the Haverhill line right now. We've traveled half a stop in 90mins. "Winter Happens", per MBTA signs.

Car on Green Line tracks in Allston

The T can't win for losing today. The outbound B Line has come to a complete halt at Warren Street because somebody managed to get a car right onto the tracks.

There's a train waiting for a pine box northbound on the Ashmont branch and some unspecified issue causing delays southbound on both branches. In other words, it's a Monday.

Crowded Fitchburg Line train

Riders aren't supposed to ride in the spaces between cars on commuter rail, but, eh, whadaya gonna do, right, Fitchburg Line riders? Finn, who was among those lucky riders around 7 a.m., reports a conductor's reassuring words:

If you're in there, make sure you hold on.

Delays on the Orange Line quickly escalated to "severe" after a train pushed up daisies near Wellington.

Blue Line riders had to put up with track issues.

Deadpool at a T stop

Deadpool takes the T? Sure, why not? But why is he seeming to propose to a Transit cop (in this photo provided by Transit Police)? Just overcome by the spirit of new beginnings? Or is he begging for mercy? Your guess below.

Boston trolley in 1943

As 1943 turned into 1944, Boston trolleys ran every 10 minute, all night, the folks at the Boston City Archives inform us. The BAC Library identifies the station as today's Prudential stop.

Jiaan has long wondered about the big fat nothing indicated by the sign at the 66 bus stop on Harvard Avenue at Comm. Ave. in Allston: What does it mean?

By - 12/30/15 - 9:57 am

UPDATE, 11:40 a.m. A Red Line train exhaled its last at Andrew and now the T reports "severe" delays.

Yes, it was return of the signal problems from hell on the Braintree branch this morning.

But don't feel so smug, Orange Line riders - one of your trains bought the farm near Sullivan Square, causing delays from there and Oak Grove.

Today's delays on the Newburyport/Rockport and Haverhill lines are brought to you with a Viagra-fueled drawbridge that just won't go down.

Waiting for a bus instead of the Blue Line downtown

Like the last train out of Paris, only Humphrey Bogart isn't involved. Photo by Alex Martland.

Just in time for rush hour, the T has shut the Blue Line, because something isn't right with the tunnel between State Street and Aquarium, as in a metal grate falling from the ceiling onto the tracks.

Buses are now running between Bowdoin and Maverick, after a fashion. Alex Martland reports:

This is going swimmingly. No signs, no one knows where to stand... Blue line gonna blue line.
