Wires fry, riders cry

Burning trackless-trolley wires in Watertown Square

The overhead wires for the 71 trackless trolley don't do much good when they catch on fire, as they did this afternoon in Watertown Square - as Itbeale captured.

Well that explains a lot. Ugh. Wish I'd seen this before I left work yesterday. They were still towing the trackless trolleys out of Watertown Square (the tow trucks are hilariously tiny compared to the buses) around 6:30 when I finally got home last night. No service alerts this morning, though. I guess we'll see...

Still running diesels and hybrids this morning, but the delay wasn't too bad at 7:30ish.
