Some real major voyages of the damned: Signal woes leave Worcester Line riders slammed

Some passengers on the Worcester Line sat in stalled trains for up to three hours tonight.



Do you like how UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


After freezing for nearly an hour at Boston Landing waiting for a 6:30 train, I was able to board the 5:50 departure from S. Station at about 7:25. Another hour and we got to the W. Natick bottleneck.

I was mostly glad to not freeze and to get home before nine. But why a failure of this magnitude should happen without an accident or malicious damage causing it is really disappointing.

They're replacing the signaling on the Worcester line for Positive Train Control but I haven't seen any info on whether it's the old or the new system that failed.

It's impressive that a line that runs only 4 trains per hour during the 5 pm hour, and 2 trains per hour for the rest of rush hour, somehow generates 3 hour delays when they have to give manual permission to pass broken signals.
