Now this really blows: Red Line train has power woes

The MBTA reports 10-15 minute delays (whoa, no more "moderate" and "severe," but specific times? Yay) on the Red Line due to "a disabled train with a power problem at JFK/UMass."

Fair point.

However, a time range is less vague than a term like "moderate".

I'd prefer a more vague term

I'd prefer a more vague term over an inaccurate guess, though!

If you say "moderate" I plan for the worst. If you say "5-10 minute delays" but it's actually 25 minutes more... that really sucks.

But time will tell as to how accurate those estimates are.

For the first two to three years after T alerts were introduced, the severity of delays was given in a time range. Glad to see they finally figured out it works better than the "minor, moderate, severe" nonsense.
