Riders on some MBTA commuter rail lines may face delays Monday morning, MBCR says

The Haverhill, Fitchburg, and Worcester/Framingham commuter rail lines will likely encounter delays during the morning rush hour tomorrow, according to an email from Scott Farmelant, who handles media for the private company operating commuter rail for the MBTA.

On the Worcester/Framingham line, the freight company that owns the tracks, CSX, has imposed a 30 mile per hour limit on trains west of Southboro due to fallen trees and tree limbs on tracks, as well as heavy snow conditions, according to Farmelant, spokesman for the Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Company (MBCR).

The Fitchburg line was disrupted by more than 30 felled trees from the storm, and power outages are expected to persist during the morning commute, according to the email.
