It's looking like the MBTA might be back on the rails, at least fiscally. Last summer the T was $33 million in the hole, and then-general manger Dan Grabauskas was threatening to eliminate weekend commuter rail service, among other drastic cuts.

Today, the T is rolling on with a modest $1.2 million surplus. Is it thanks to the the managerial wizardry of new general manager Richard Davey? We'll ask him.

And we'll also ask if that $1.2 million will be enough to keep people from getting trapped underground again.
