It happened early this afternoon, four stab wounds to the back with the victim. They were non-life threatening stab wounds so he should be OK.

Just what the Red Line needed, another unwanted headache in the downtown area. The third time in the last 12 days!

No, it's the third major pain on the Red Line in 12 days. First was the weekend bustitution between Park Street and Kendal, then it was the HAZMAT incident at Park Street, now the stabbing.

Believe me, if it was the third stabbing in 12 days on the Red Line you would hear about it all over the place.

East Boston isn't a problem area. Ashmont has a substation there which i have always seen manned. Maverick always has at least one officer in the station helping keep the high schoolers from getting too rowdy(and they get very rowdy without him/her).

There was something going on this morning as well, on the Red Line. The North bound trains from both Ashmont and Braintree were all piled up at JFK, and it took quite some time for my Braintree bound train to arrive, and as we passed the stations along the rest of the line, the platforms were all super-packed with commuters trying to go into the city. The PA announcements were apologizing for something, but god only knows what they were saying as that system seems to have deteriorated even worse lately. This entire week seems to have brought delays on the Red Line, and I hate to face this weekend's travel!

I heard them announcing that the delays this morning were due to "switch problems at Broadway." Got me why they'd be using switches at Broadway, but that's what they said.

I took three trips on the Red Line today -- never waited more than a minute. Guess I got pretty lucky considering...
Wondering if I'll see the Haverhill double-tracking finished before I retire...

There were major delays at 6PM at the western section of the RL, too.
Recently, I have a feeling that the Red Line is falling apart. Is it my imagination, or what?

Construction galore on the line, trains getting older, and incidents affecting service don't help but the line is in no way falling apart.

I mean... It's failing to serve as a reliable means of transportation, something you can unconditionally trust. In the past two weeks I missed more buses because of the RL delays than in the whole past year.
