An inbound Red Line train at Andrew had to be taken out of service when it began to get more than just a tad smoky. The T reports: "The train had an issue with the heating/AC unit on top of one of the cars. The unit has been shut off and the train was sent to the yard," no doubt to think about what it had done.

Guy tossing metal rod onto tracks

Too early to be practicing for the Olympic javelin toss.

For better or worse. But what it means is that if, oh, you're at Andrew on the Red Line and you decide it might make sense to throw some metal object onto the third rail and the T has to stop service so it can retrieve that item, chance are good Transit Police will pull a snap of you of one of the surveillance cameras, which should make it easier for them to find and arrest you.
