Amtrak, MBTA commuter rail riders may face delays again getting home tonight

A downed Amtrak overhead power wire, which slowed much of Boston’s commuter rail and Amtrak transit this morning, could also affect the evening commute, officials said.

Passengers on 39 inbound and 22 outbound trains on six commuter rail lines, as well as six Amtrak trains, experienced delays this morning ranging from 20 minutes to more than an hour during peak service hours.
