The scrolling LED sign by the fare gates at South Station used to helpfully tell you the time, which was useful when you were coming up the escalator from the platforms below and your cellphone doesn't like telling you the time if it can't get a signal ("Hey, if I can't get my signal, you ain't getting your time.") However, since Thursday (at least) it has been replaced with a scrolling message, which I shall attempt to reproduce verbatim below:

"Did you know that sign's got a spelling error on it?" I asked one of the gate attendants on Thursday. She took a look, read the sign as it scrolled by, and snorted.

"Figures," she said.
