BOSTON -- Commuters on Boston's T subway system found National Guardsmen and police inside stations Tuesday morning.
Inside a downtown-bound Red Line train, riders found their commute quieter than usual, and somber.
"Everyone's down," said Leo Doolin, 49, of Dorchester, who was reading a newspaper article about the explosions. "Everybody's very quiet."
Still stunned by Monday's bombings near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, commuters found themselves subdued and on edge -- finding suspicion where they hadn't before, in a backpack or someone wearing a long leather jacket.
"They're numb. They all don't know how to feel," said Faye, a 31-year-old riding the Green Line train who declined to give her last name.
Some said the trains seemed to be less crowded than usual, perhaps a sign that many people weren't going to work Tuesday.
