After two months of being hampered by brutal winter weather, the MBTA says all four subway lines had the regular number of cars operating Thursday morning.

"With today's Green Line count reaching 146, all four rapid transit lines have the required numbers of cars in service for the first time since January 22," T spokesman Joe Pesaturo said in an email.

In addition to the Green Line cars, there were 178 cars on the Red Line, 96 on the Orange Line and 84 on the Blue Line.

That's on the subway system. On the commuter rail, its operator, Keolis, said last month it plans to restore full service back by March 30.
