The Green Line

A Green Line train derailed in a switching area near Government Center Wednesday evening. The train, which was carrying no passengers, went off the rails as it was moving at low speed to an outbound platform from a turnaround loop.

Service operated in two parts, inbound stopping at Park Street, and North Station to Lechmere on the other side of the accident. Passengers were redirected to the Orange Line.

More on this as the investigation reveals why such a thing happened. The T, especially the Green Line, has been the subject of several safety issues in the last year. Hopefully, these incidents are not indicative of the general state of affairs on the line.
