A Revere man who spent part of an Orange Line ride staring at a girl under 14 ground himself into her as she and her mother got off the train at Downtown Crossing around 10:50 a.m. yesterday, Transit Police report.
The MBTA reports delays of up to 10 minutes on the Orange Line due to signal problems at Forest Hills. Lauren Picone wishes to have a word with the T about its timekeeping:
Orange Line delays are MORE than 10 minutes. I have been sitting at Forest Hills for at least 10 minutes. Can you please get the trains moving, or, failing that, at least update your incorrect information? These delays are SEVERE.
A pesky, recalcitrant door on an outbound Orange Line train at Mass. Ave. is causing delays of up to 10 minutes, the T reports.
The MBTA is reporting northbound delays of 15 minutes or so on the Orange Line, due to a train with mechanical issues near North Station.
There was a small fire on the Orange Line near Assembly, small enough a train driver was able to put it out with an extinguisher, but large enough to cause delays, the T reports.
Andrealynn reports this broken faregate at Assembly has been stuck in open for weeks now.
Jed Hresko captured this sign at Jackson Square this evening. Was it frustrated at all the attention area highway signs are getting, but just couldn't sum it all up in 40 characters?
An Oak Grove train with a motor problem at Downtown Crossing is gumming up the works on the Orange Line, the MBTA reports. One rider reports the northbound platform was evacuated due to smoke.
At 7:37 a.m., the T reported that it had fixed signal problems at Oak Grove and that "regularly scheduled service" had resumed. At 8:46, Kristen W reported: Nope.
Horrible delays on the Orange line today...and some cars aren’t even opening?

The woman who got her leg trapped between an Orange Line train and the platform at Massachusetts Avenue yesterday afternoon had a bit of luck - another passenger had just seen a video of people freeing a man in a similar predicament in Australia by pushing the train just enough to get him out, and directed other passengers to give a good push.

Since 2015, Widett Circle fans who use one of the upper-busway routes at Forest Hills have been able to enjoy the permanent display of a banner headline about the industrial area on the last Boston Globe ever delivered to the honor box there. Read more.
And that was only part of the horror at Massachusetts Avenue station during rush hour:
Just as upsetting she begged no one call an ambulance. “It’s $3000,” she wailed. “I can’t afford that.”
