What do you call a disabled train on the Longfellow Bridge?

The delay maker.

At least one person burst out laughing, because, really, what else can you do?

It's way easier to find the situation funny if you're wearing noise-canceling headphones.

Just when I thought trains couldn't go any slower over that bridge, one proves me wrong by stopping completely. Things have certainly not been going well for poor ol' Longfellow lately...

But this is Cambridge, and we call them "differently abled" trains here.

And that's why the Jocular Schlemiel wasn't so jocular today.

Did anyone else notice that Boston.com was claiming that people were being bused from HARVARD to Park, rather than Kendall to Park?

I checked it several times over a half hour (7:20 to 7:50AM, about), and mbta.com and boston.com continued to disagree about how bad it was. It sounds like boston.com was getting it wrong.

The busing was from Harvard to Park at the beginning and then they changed it to Kendall to Park. Thls is pretty standard for some reason... You'd think that if they could just do Kendall to Park they would do that.
