As the temps begin to chill, a train dies at Savin Hill

The MBTA is blaming a deceased train at Savin Hill for mounting Red Line delays. Stuart Spina reports:

57 minutes to travel ~1,700 feet. That is all.

Jon adds some people are just walking:

Red line train delayed and abruptly taken out of service at Savin Hill. No further information, no @MBTA reps in sight, no shuttle busses. Passengers planning to walk home 20-30min as temps drop below freezing. We need a #FareStrike til they fix the T

Presumably, that people in Chile believe that it's possible to hold their government responsible for providing services and infrastructure that their residents rely on.

The country of Chile and the city of Boston couldn't be further from similar when it comes to public transportation. It's insulting to Chilean peoples to compare the two. We have boundless opportunities for employment here Americans just love to bitch and complain.

Yeah, I'm sure it's the Chileans you're worried about being insulted.

set the trains on fire in the train yards. Here the trains do that on their own.

It was supposed to prevent this kind of weather-related problem.

Not all train mechanical failures are weather related.

Did anyone catch American Experience last night on TV? Great documentary on the first subway in the country here in Boston. I've seen other documentaries about it but it was very good.

The congestion in Boston in that era (1888 ish) made today look like a cake walk!

Interesting to watch how the city and private sector tried to ease the nightmare on the streets and how the then Mayor had to wrangle control from the private sector.

That was a very well done documentary. I pass the intersection of Boylston and Tremont daily, and have studied the history of the Tremont Street subway, but never knew about the gas explosion before this.
