Do trains each have to have a train number assigned manually before beginning their route from a terminal in order to show up on the map in MBTA.COM or were there indeed no inbound Blue Line trains anywhere on the line between Orient Hts and Bowdoin at 4:38 PM today (March 15)? (Wonderland to Orient Hts. out of service.)
(To the theater stage manager) Quit twiddling the knob and flickering the lights while the audience is entering and being seated. (To the subway motorman) Quit twiddling the knob and dinging the doors while passengers are getting off and others are waiting to board.

New England Casket Co. fire shut down the Blue Line yesterday afternoon, and required evacuation of the neighborhood. Apparently the smoke was especially toxic as they were talking about it on the air. Covered on all local & some national media https://boston.cbslocal.com/video/4047979-massive-fire-destroys-casket-company-in-east-boston/

Wasn't the casket factory building originally the BRB&L car shops?
