For 2nd consecutive day, overhead power problem disrupts Green Line

Shuttle buses replaced trolley service on part of the MBTA Green Line on Saturday, the second consecutive day that the line suffered an overhead power problem.MBTA officials said the power problem occurred near Copley Square. E Branch passengers were instructed to use the Route 39 bus for service between Prudential and Back Bay/Copley Square. Downtown riders are instructed to switch to the Orange Line as an alternative between Back Bay and North Station. NewsCenter 5 was in contact with a passenger who said he was stuck on the train Saturday morning between Copley and Hynes when he saw sparks and smoke in a rear car. He said the train was then “completely shut down” and shared a photo from aboard a darkened trolley. On Friday afternoon, a pantograph problem halted service on the MBTA’s Green Line Extension branches. In that instance, the equipment that connects a train to overhead power lines failed near Lechmere Station.
