Withering in the heat

Commuter trains between Framingham and Worcester will run at maximum speeds of 40 miles an hour for the rest of the day due to the heat. Train officials lower the speed limit from 60 miles an hour during especially hot weather because of concerns about the steel rails expanding. The change is expected to delay trains on that portion of the line for about 20 minutes for the rest of the day.
