Green Line power near North Station is ill fated: One trolley there has to be evacuated

The Green Line is dead in the area of North Station due to a problem with the overhead power wire, as in, it fell down. A trolley that had just left the station for Science Park died in the tunnel and now Boston firefighters are arriving both to investigate the wire issue and to help evacuate a passenger in a wheelchair - after T workers led other passengers down the tracks back to the station. The T says it is rounding up buses for a shuttle between Government Center and Lechmere.

A very bad joke and the joke is on us. Heads should roll but they will probably get a raise. Thanks to BFD and BPD for their professionalism can't say the same for the Transit Police.

Wires also fell down on the trackless trolleys out of Harvard Station one recent evening. Is this a new problem?
