Passengers on an outbound Fitchburg Line train had to endure two hours on a cold, unlit train stuck in Weston this evening - and then 15 minutes standing outside in single-digit temperatures waiting for a relief train.
At 5:42 p.m., SMM posted this selfie from her seat on the train:
No power. No heat. Waiting for a tow train, just outside of Kendall Green. First real cold day and major fail...
UPDATE, 735 p.m.
Greg DiGeronimo, who is also on the train, reports:
Almost Two hours stopped with no heat as other train passed then we had to get off in dangerous cold temps for 15 minutes completely unacceptable
UPDATE, 8 p.m.
We still aren’t to Wachusett yet. ...
No lights either- still havent arrived at our destination- I left my office at 4pm
