Broken door on a new Green Line trolley at Copley

Jonathan Berk was among the riders inconvenienced at Copley Square around 11:40 a.m. when yet another one of the brand-spanking new Green Line trolleys had to be taken out of service because one of its doors broke. He adds it wasn't just Green Line regulars who were put out - there were a lot of Orange Line riders trying to use the Green Line as a downtown replacement due to it being shut for repairs this weekend.

The MBTA reports delays on the Riverside Line due to "a switch problem" at Riverside. But that's not all. Phil R reports what he saw at Reservoir:

Another snowy day, another one of those new, state of the art IB #MBTA #GreenLine trains was just taken out of service at Reservoir. Complete with the sign showing "Call Police" when we passed it on my train.
