News:

Two trains collided on the D branch Green Line about an hour and a half ago from now. One slammed right into the back of another near Woodland station. There are a few injuries, and D branch is currently a shuttle west of Reservoir.

Too soon to tell anything, like what exactly happened.

Wow, the last post on here was from the day of the D branch accident? Yikes.

Speaking of the D branch, I was a little put off yesterday when they decided to go from Newton Center station express to Riverside when I was already running late. I take it they do this because one train is running a little behind and the one behind them is ahead of schedule? They pull this stunt at Harvard Station sometimes, running express to Alewife. How much time can you actually save by not stopping at Porter and Davis if you have to go through the stations at about 5 MPH anyway?

News: the state is threatening major change of service to close a 8 billion dollar budget issue. Among ideas being thrown around, a T fare hike of 25 percent and a 30 percent reduction in bus and subway service, along with some bus routes being eliminated altogether. I've also heard that six cents of the proposed 19 cent gas tax hike would be dedicated to the MBTA. Or perhaps both, considering this is Massachusetts after all.
