Jam and cram at Charles/MGH.
Midwinter's Wolf reports Charles/MGH turned into a mosh pit this evening when an inbound train died there shortly before 6 p.m. and the T ordered everybody out after another train arrived to push it
into the Charles out of the way.
Only the platform was so crowded not everybody could get off the train. Joelle Baehrend reports:
Stuck on a train with doors open at Charles MGH. Platform so packed we can't exit the train. Sick person in our car. Unsafe.
The MBTA reported "moderate" delays as it dealt with that situation. Sarah Marina, at Downtown Crossing shows us what that meant there:
Raymond Ausrotas was also at Downtown Crossing:
And you can only imagine what it was like at Harvard. Just in case you can't, though, S.I. Lydon describes the scene:
Train at Harvard still waiting to move apparently after 1/2 hour because of disabled train at Charles. Tons of folk headed upstairs to wait for the #1. Good times.
