Trains to Boston to Resume on Monday, Use Caution at Station

The MBTA said that commuter rail service will return to normal on Monday morning.

The MBTA plans to resume commuter rail service on Monday, returning to normally scheduled trips after the service was shut down for two and a half days because of the blizzard.

The T stopped running commuter rail trains to and from Hamilton-Wenham station at 3:30 p.m. on Friday as the blizzard approached.

Service remained halted through Saturday and into Sunday. The T resumed some service - mostly subways - on Sunday. But commuter rail service systemwide remained shut down through Sunday.

On Sunday at about 11 a.m., the T announced that regular service would resume at the start of service on Monday. The first train headed in to Boston from Hamilton-Wenham station leaves at 5:41 a.m. on Monday.

And while trains plan to return to normal service, the T is still advising riders to leave extra time for their trip.

"Customers should expect significant delays and plan extra time for the morning commute as MBTA service recovers from the impacts of the storm," the T said in its weather statement on Sunday afternoon. "Due to significant snow accumulations, customers are encouraged to use caution at station platforms."
