Shuttle buses replacing Green Line E Branch service between Lechmere and North Station due to a trolley accident at Lechmere. Please expect delays as buses are sent.


Uh oh...

Derailment on the B line this morning.

Looks like the 8 split the switch while crossing back over to head inbound. 3890 is the culprit.

Almost 11 hours later and service is still down from B.U. East to Kenmore. The Green Line has been an absolute mess today, every train I saw was packed, and I had to wait close to 20 minutes for a C train.

Given how the Breda carried out a slow-motion re-enactment of the Eschede rail disaster with that inspector's hut standing in for the bridge pier, I'm not surprised that it's taking a while to open the B line back up.

Train is back on the tracks now. Service will probably be back up soon.
