In Boston, he would have gotten about one block before encountering a double parked delivery truck blocking the track :)

Also I wouldn't recommend his method of putting the pole back on the wire.

How dare you compare such shoddy operation to the fine men and women of the Carmens Union. Not to mention that most Boston cars were not speed demons!

The next stop is Washington. Change for Forest Hills Trains on the Winter St. Platform, and Everett Trains on the Summer St. Platform. This is an Ashmont train, change for Braintree at Columbia.
