Some North Station riders had reason to pout, at least until a loco fire was put out

The Boston Fire Department reports firefighters responded to North Station around 1:30 p.m. after a locomotive on Track 4 began belching fire. Firefighters quickly knocked down the fire, which caused no injuries but which did cause some delays on service into the station.



Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


Sort of unrelated, but the North Station train shed and the parking lot next door seem like a great location for transit oriented development or housing. Suprised we haven’t seen any proposals yet.

I am just thinking out loud with you, I find myself advising my friends away from "north station/the garden".

It's noisy, the businesses cater to people going to the Garden, and there is very little green space.

But you are right about the transportation adjacency, maybe we can build a nice park too.
