Smoking commuter rail train delayed in Attleboro

A mechanical problem caused smoke to pour from the locomotive of an MBTA commuter rail train on Thursday morning, according to Keolis, the company that operates the commuter rail for the T.

The inbound 808 train experienced problems at the Attleboro commuter rail station after 7 a.m., according to an MBTA alert. A commuter shared a photo of the smoking locomotive on Twitter.

The issue was caused by clogged air filters, a Keolis spokesperson told Boston.com.

The filters were removed and the train departed the station about 20 minutes late, according to the spokesperson. The train continued its route to Boston without any lights, the spokesperson said.
