The Herald gets the story wrong

Today’s Boston Herald published a story about the recent renovation of Uphams Corner station on the Fairmount commuter rail line. Too bad the Herald got the story so wrong.

According to the Herald article, the station closed two years ago and reopened yesterday. In fact, the station remained open throughout the renovation, at the neighborhood’s request. It was never removed from the T’s schedule. I used it three weeks ago, when the Herald claims it was closed.

The Herald used to assign a full-time reporter, Robin Washington, to the transportation beat. Unfortunately, they never replaced him after he left for Duluth, and it shows.
