It just wouldn't be a morning rush hour on the Red Line without at least one train sputtering to its death, and, sure enough, a train died at Andrew this morning, causing delays of up to 30 minutes.
New cars are being built. Until then, old cars will continue to break. There, I saved you about 1000 repetitive posts on the topic.
Can't wait! But new cars won't fix signal problems, sadly.
It's really not worth complaining about / documenting extensively on a blog. We get it. New stuff can't come any faster. Relax.
It's news and it's in Boston, so it's reported here. Skip over it if you're not interested. Relax! :)
what is up with the Red Line? Is it that they have poorly made cars, or is it the fact that it is outdoors for so long on its lines? Or do they just not do very good maintenance?
They've been in service for many decades. The signal system also simply needs to be updated.
Just have to give yourself an extra half hour during extreme cold, I guess.
during "partly sunny and mild" as well, since Red Line cars are failing no matter what the weather is.
