The train eventually came to a stop on its own after traveling roughly a half mile. According to the...www.nbcboston.com
The Red Line was the crown jewel of MBTA heavy rail.
The Pullman-Standard cars need to be retired NOW - They have served the community well and actually have outlasted the orginal cars that ran from 1912 to 1963 which were replaced by the the Pullman-Standard Bluebirds that were retired in 1994 after 31 years.
Glad no one got hurt in the runaway and the train was brought to a stop. Seems like everyday, its something new with the MBTA. Derailments, new trains taken out of service, cancellations, etc. Nothing new in the world, but when it happens day after day, you have to ask what's going on? As for the CRRC cars to replace the fleet, gotta be patient.
