More fun on the commuter rail today...

I got to Framingham station to catch the 6:44 AM inbound express. The LED message boards read something to the effect of "All inbound service to Boston delayed due to mechanical breakdown. Please wait for more information."

I knew I had a very busy day ahead of me and I really couldn't afford a long delay getting into work. So I walked back to the car and drove into town.

Later in the day I talked to a co-worker who takes the same train. I asked her how late it was and she told me that it was only about five minutes late! So I spent money on gas, tolls and parking because the MBTA/MBCR felt the need to inform me about a five minute delay, but not give any specifics.
