Whatever happened happened around 10 p.m. The T initially said a trolley derailed at Park Street, but then said, nope the trolley "split a switch" but didn't actually go off the rails. Photo of non-derailment switch splitting.
In either case, no injuries, but also no service between Arlington Street and North Station. Riders can use the Orange Line instead, the T says.
