BOSTON (CBS) – Patience was put to the test on Friday for some commuters taking the train to work.

Keolis Boston slowed Commuter Rail trains, saying in a statement that even with the best precautions, train service can be impacted with the extreme weather conditions in the Boston area.

The delays came as no surprise to some riders, who took it all in stride.
