What I'm curious about is why the express track wasn't used to avoid the broken rail. Perhaps that would have meant no northbound trains would have stopped at Assembly, but wouldn't getting off at Assembly by changing to a southbound train at Wellington or heading from Assembly to stops north of the Mystic by changing at Sullivan have been less of a pain than bustitution?
You mean the test track? It's an active construction site right now and it's missing the third rail between Sullivan Square and Community College.

I'm sure that there will be lawsuits resulting from this incident!
