    A minor derailment outside Boston's South Station caused delays on MBTA Commuter Rail lines.

    Transit officials said a Fairmount Line train derailed at a low speed around 8 p.m.

    Four passengers and approximately six workers were on the train, but no injuries were reported.

    A representative from Keolis, the company that operates the commuter rail, said an out-of-service commuter train hit another train, causing three coach cars to derail.

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    Delays and cancellations were announced on the Fairmount, Middleborough/Lakeville, Kingston/Plymouth and Greenbush lines. Service between Newmarket and South Station on the Fairmount Line was being replaced by a shuttle bus.

    Keolis said it did not know what impact the derailment would have on the morning commute.
