Blue Line really hosed; let's just consider it closed

UPDATE: The line is moving again, with "only" 20-minute "residual" delays.

The T is reporting "delays of more than an hour" due to a busted train near Maverick that another train tried to push into the station, only according to one rider, that train broke, too.

An hour? Couldn't somebody walk the length of the line in less than that?

Two trains down. Time for T-workers to ditch the vests and hide.

I guess we've once again entered one of the seasons in which the T is unable to operate.

  • Winter - extreme cold busting signals, switches, electronics
  • Fall - wet leaves falling on tracks, rendering trains immobile
  • and now Summer - extreme heat busting signals, switches, electronics
