Service Last night

Postby jrc520 » Thu Oct 28, 2004 10:01 am

Well, sitting in the comfort of my computing chair last night, I had my scanner on. Trying to confirm what I heard, which was if the T ended up skipping Kenmore square or not. I had heard the police trying to get them to do so, but I didn't know if the T did it or not. Also, some idiots ended up running on the commuter rail tracks near beacon park yard. >_<

You're right, in other words, Tresspassing on a Railroad Right of Way. That's what they were doing.

Unfortunately that is a regular spot for people to cross the tracks.....right behind the B.U. buildings on Buick Street, to get to the Charles.

If this is used enough, perhaps it needs a gate-controlled pedestrian crossing, like the two near MIT?

It's a main-line, that is fenced-off, but sometimes they cut a hole in the fence.......................just too lazy to walk on public property because that would be a longer route.

The pedestrian crossing behind MIT on the Grand Jct. Running track is just that......a pedestrian crossing.

Another note, commuter trains are required by special instruction to dim their headlights when operating alongside the Turnpike extension. It took two sets of eyes the other night to find a large group of BU students walking down the tracks towards us at CP3 ( the east end of Beacon Park Yard) Luckily we saw them and made enough noise to scare them out of the way. Lke CSX said it is private property and trespassers damaged private property ( the fence) to access the short cut.
