T works to restore full service after 2nd subway derailment
BOSTON (AP) — Transit officials say they hope to restore normal service on the Red Line next week as they continue to repair damage caused by a train derailment.
For now, delays continue and riders on the Braintree branch of the Red Line must switch cars at the JFK/UMass station in Boston.
MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak said Friday he could not guarantee if the disruptions would end by Monday.
Officials are still investigating Tuesday’s derailment, the second within a matter of days on the T, but say the operator of the train was not at fault.
Nearly a dozen people were hurt in a Green Line derailment on Saturday that investigators have blamed on operator error. The T has suspended that operator.
There were no serious injuries in Tuesday’s mishap.
