I aslo got an alert about a track problem. So that's like half the excuses the MBTA has all in one day.

Orange line "track problem" at the Community College portal of the Charles River tunnel around 8 this morning. Severe delays and talk of bustitution.

Red Line having unannounced issues at Harvard. Trains are stopping in the turn with the last car still in the station and waiting until the train ahead clears Central. Sounds like the recurring 'signal issue at Harvard' is back again.

A trolley seems to have caught on fire at Copley.

Brake resisters on an 8 probably. Actually not that rare an occurrence.

On second view that's a 7 so some other problem.

Black seats from that video shot on that Type 7, so it looks like a 3700-series?
