That was the Green Line. The Red Line trains were just as crowded back then as they are now. Obviously it will be a little more crowded because both Red and Green will be together, but they can rig it to go pretty smoothly if they stage the trains correctly. You probably aren't going to have to sit in a train for 10 minutes after a game waiting for the Guiness Book of World Records to show up to count how many people have been fit into a train car next year.
Plus, there will be a drop in users I'm sure.
