T Stalactites 

T Stalactites

Can anyone tell me what these disgusting-looking formations are that can be found at many or all underground T stations? They don't have matching mystery stalagmites, as the platforms themselves do get mopped periodically. You can see the remnant stains on the platform from the attempted formations, though. I should have gotten a picture of that as well, but my train arrived.

This particular group was at the Park Street Station, Red Line outbound platform, at the eastern end.

These are babies compared to the ones at the New England Medical Center Orange Line station. I'll see if I can remember to capture a shot of one of those this semester.
