The MBTA is reporting delays of up to 20 minutes on the Orange Line, due to a train that had to be taken out of service outbound at State Street, due to the sort of problems that won't happen when the new trains get here, um, whenever. Or as Karyn with a Y put it:

20 minutes for a train. get on and heat is blasting. go one stop and it goes out of service. WHERE ARE THE NEW TRAINS?!
