The T is reporting major delays - as in like 30 minutes - due to "a track problem" between Quincy Center and Wollaston.

Meri Persisted reports from a packed South Station:

It’s shoulder to shoulder at South Station heading to Alewife. Can’t get on the train. NOT just a Braintree bound issue. This is utterly ridiculous.

Veronica reports it's no better at Kendall:

The delay at Kendall just keeps being announced as longer and longer. No train.

Reading the T's webpage this morning, the track problem was a residual effect of them doing maintenance overnight.

Also, you do realize how the bonds for the Big Dig are paid off, right?
