WHITMAN, MASS. (WHDH) - A fire in the switching gears at a railroad crossing in Whitman prompted Commuter Rail service to shut down Friday morning.
The small fire in the area of the Franklin Street crossing caused the Kingston/Plymouth Line to run up to 30 minutes behind schedule, according to the MBTA.
The flames have since been extinguished and Whitman Fire-Rescue has cleared the trains to move again.
The MBTA warned that residual delays may occur.
