    High-speed trolleys running on a suburban route...one smashes into the other. Allegedly, one train operator still is trapped.

    That's awful--prayers go out especially for the trapped operator. The T always seems so safe, that it's easy to forget that this can happen.
     
  3. Jesus, I take that train whenever I go to Fenway. That's right near the Riverside station.

    A miracle no one was killed; those two trains looked quite messed up.

    I don't think the operator's out of the woods, yet.

    Nope, ends on the edge of Newton.

    I thought this would be a thread about the Pistons offense.

    Wow. Surprisingly, I always find the subways to be so safe regardless of where I go - and I honestly didn't think that this could happen, given that they were always so far apart.

    Thoughts to the family.

    There was a bad crash on the L yesterday in Chicago, too. No fatalities, though.
