Franklin Line train has mechanical woes: It's very tired and it barely goes

The MBTA reports train 708, which was supposed to leave Franklin at 7:50 a.m., has some sort of mechanical problem and so is going wicked slow and was expected to get into South Station 45 to 60 minutes late. Eamonn McHugh-Roohr reports from the voyage of the darned:

Ice in the brake lines and engineer flying blind.

The train got stuck at Readville. The brakes wouldn't release. Conductors were prompt and clear in explaining the problem. We eventually started moving but at a reduced speed and because of this they put us on a second track which meant we didn't make the expected stop at Ruggles.

I really just look at MBTA-related tweets and then come up with rhymes on the spot. It is getting harder to stay original, I have to admit.
