Orange Line is dead, try a bus instead

Update: Trains moving again, except between Wellington and Oak Grove, where the T is rolling out shuttle buses.

A fire at Malden Center is jamming up the entire Orange Line. Am posting this from aboard a Forest Hills train at Back Bay, which is standing by because of the fire several miles in the other direction.

Last fire was Thursday evening about the same time at Community College.

GG, MBTA.

All the prototype new Orange Line trains have been destroyed in the fire, pushing the rollout back to September

I was on that train. It kept stopping in every station and sitting there for 10 minutes. Why it was traveling like that, I have no idea, but MBTA management is clueless.
