Brendan Kearney reports he'd just gotten off a trolley at Lechmere when the trolley failed to navigate the curve to turn around and came a bit off the tracks. The T is now busing passengers.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
Leck-MEER or LEECH-mare?
I've always called it Lechmere to rhyme with hair. Trolley Derails at Lechmere; Strandees Left With Hot Air
Leech-meer. Or leech-meah, depending on your accent.
It is, and has always been, LEECHmeer.
How do you say it
In case you needed a audio aid..
Ah, Lechmere. Perhaps, as a
Ah, Lechmere. Perhaps, as a change of pace, they should rename the station for one of the following: Fretter, Caldor, Bradlees, Tweeter or Somerville Lumber.

Don't forget Turn Style, Almys and Zayre! Call me lowbrow, but I miss the days of those stores.
explains why my bus never came last night
