Derailment reported on the Red Line at JFK/UMass station. At least one car derailed, which is resting at an angle directly underneath Columbia Road bridge. I know no other details. Not a good week on the subway!

So it sounds like they have to move under manual control from the dispatcher station to station through those areas and the max speed is 25 mph. That would account for the 20 minutes.
