Worcester Line Train 521 (2:55 pm from South Station) is operating 10 - 15 minutes behind schedule between Yawkey and Worcester to heavy ridership.

They make it sound like "heavy ridership" is a station :wink:
Also some "Amtrak traffic" on the Prov. line.

Shuttle buses replacing Middleborough Train 2002 (6:50 am inbound) from Montello to Holbrook/Randolph and then Braintree where passengers can transfer to Red Line.

There's a police action in the area

^ Someone was shot on the tracks in Brockton, causing delays.

Heavy ridership is a station ;-)

521 was 8 double deckers stuffed to the gills yesterday, I think it's arrived at Worcester 30 mins late.

Anyone know the number of the disabled HSP last week?

It sounds (from the T Alerts) like 160 broke down somewhere, and a rescue set sent out to cover the remainder of the inbound run, with only a 40 minute delay. Wondering if this was another HSP issue?
Wondering if I'll see the Haverhill double-tracking finished before I retire...

Power failure at Tower A last night. All four of the last trains of the night were 60 minutes late.

I just noticed 1032 has the "out of service" asterisk on NETransit, so maybe 1032 was the issue?

They do not update NETransit after each and every mechanical problem. The 1032 has been out for at least a couple weeks now.

Okay, it was just an assumption because sometimes the website is updated rather quickly.
