I can say the train I rode didn't have any trouble getting into Boston today. There was an issue later on when a car decided to go around the crossing bars in West Medford and was hit by the Amtrak train. Train vs. Car - Train always wins. Reminds of something a guy said to me when a truck hit a railroad bridge: Truck vs. Bridge - Bridge always wins. There's something that is reassuring about absolutes. Maybe it's because I feel like you can count on those situations to always end the same way. Besides that, don't get into a fight you can't win. Don't try to beat the train on the tracks. Train always wins.
