It's a hot day, so it wasn't a surprise to see yet another hot car on the Franklin #715 train: coach 1517. There was the usual overcrowding in other coaches, with about 20 standees per coach. And once again, the temperature in the hot car was nearly unbearable, even with the doors open.
On an unrelated note, a friend just passed on the news (from The Boston Community on LiveJournal) that "the communications center at High Street has lost it's (sic) ability to communicate with all trains and buses (commuter rail excluded). All of the T Stations are already starting to get crowded with hundreds of people and there are delays system wide".
