It's pretty bad when people are camped out on the steps at Downtown Crossing.
A ride on the Red Line became a nightmare after a train developed one of those "mechanical problems" on the inbound tracks after pulling out of Kendall around 7:15 p.m.
Jed Hresko saw the horde recreating a Beckett play on the southbound side of Downtown Crossing, then walked away.
At the time the train suffered its embarrassing problem, the plan was for the driver to back 'er up into Kendall and unload all the people on it, then wait for the driver of another train to try to push the train out of the way or at least further up the tracks. But delays initially reported as 15 minutes turned into 20 and then 25 and then so long that people just started camping out on the steps at DTX.
