Yet another Red Line train has left this mortal coil, this time at North Quincy, and now there are delays of 20 minutes on the line. Jules Wang had a front-row seat for the train's expiration (no word if the T is providing grief counseling):
Red Line northbound train at North Quincy drifted past platform where first door is. Conductor had to run to the other end to adjust train. I'd say 5 minutes delay?
So, the conductor didn't time his stop right. Fine. But antiquated equipment made his U-turn 3 minutes instead of 10 seconds.
And after that, the train is out of service. RL NB from North Quincy overshot platform, driver pulled a complicated backup... and now the train won't work.
That makes at least three mind-numbing delays on the line today.
