This is essential: Dead train at Central

People forced off train at Central Square

12 Overripened Plums was among the people ordered off an inbound Red Line train at Central Square when smoke began coming off it.

The T reports 10-minute delays, although Boston Hurricane reports it took 29 minutes to get from Harvard to Central.

Mary Hurley reports:

Conductor on a crowded and delayed Red Line train: “We are at crush-load.” Crush-load?! That’s a new one.

Transit is the future

I'm old enough to remember when cars, at least American ones, were pieces of crap. Not so much anymore. The same can happen with public transit.

If you want to mount a credible campaign against Charlie concentrate on the 'T' word and I don't mean Trump.

Think New York City, 1978

If you think that's a good idea, look up what New York City trains were like in the late 1970s, after years of "balancing" budgets by "deferring" maintenance. Those are the trains I grew up with, before they found the money to do things like pay mechanics again. I really don't miss that. Let's try to be smart and learn from another city's mistakes.

OH NO - wasting essential (which rhymes so well with Prudential) by pairing it with Central!
