Red Line is defeated by a motor that overheated

Updated, 9:55 p.m.

Broadway got smoky around 9 p.m. when a train pulled in with an overheated motor that belched both sparks and smoke.

Boston firefighters arrived en masse, power was shut on the Red Line between South Station and Andrew and the line quickly came to a halt.

The T tried to move the train, only it got stuck in the tunnel, so now the T is trying to rustle up some buses for a shuttle between Park and JFK/UMass.
