So now the T is issuing alerts

and taking trains out of service based on UNCONFIRMED reports of problems (as so stated in several recent "initial" text alerts). Interesting approach.

Then again, a suspected track fire MAY cause 10 to 15 minute delays. Taking a revenue train out of service because you suspect a track fire WILL cause at least 10 to 15 minute delays. So let's insure our alerts are accurate.
