'T' service suspended through Saturday
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Crews and snow trains are working to clear the rails to get public transportation running as soon as possible.
The blizzard forced both the MBTA and commuter rail to shut down through Saturday.
“It’s literally a jet engine that heats up the snow, melts the snow down between the tracks and helps us eliminate any of the snow that falls from under the carriages said Bob Johnson, Commuter Rail, Chief Engineering Officer.
“I can’t imagine this running anytime soon to BU or BC so it looks like we’ll be walking everywhere,” said Erin Young.
The timing of the storm gave the T two days to get everything back on track by Monday when normal schedules resume.
