A Boston-bound commuter rail train was evacuated and searched this morning after passengers overhead a conversation at the Southborough station. Reports the Worcester Telegram:

A spokesman for the MBTA says a man was overheard saying people “should not get on” the train at the Southboro station on Wednesday morning. The man then left the area without boarding and some commuters alerted police.

Passengers were evacuated in Framingham and bomb-sniffing dogs were brought in to search the train. Nothing suspicious was found, and the train eventually continued on its way. No arrests were made.

MBTA Transit Police tweeted this morning “We appreciate our riders patience during our responses to suspicious or unattended items.” WBZ-TV reports the incident took about 30 minutes to resolve.
