MBTA Running, Amtrak Not After Tropical Storm Irene

BOSTON (CBS) – It’s just another Monday for the MBTA.

Service was shut down after 8 a.m. Sunday, just before Tropical Storm Irene swept through New England.

Authorities say it was a good thing that there were no trains because work crews were able to quickly remove debris from the tracks and restore power to signal systems and overhead wires.

Most of the problems were along the Green Line’s Riverside branch.
