Re: Reasonable southside hotel along rail or subway/trolley

Is there still a hotel adjacent to Green Line Riverside terminal? I over-nighted there a number of times in the 1980's, combining rail fanning and Boston errands. Ditto for that motel close to Red Line Braintree. Great times!

Re: Sign, sign, everywhere a sign ...

Because they're actually running to Blandford Street to turn at the pocket track there, I would guess. That would have been a B with a red slash through it, for Blandford as you say.

Re: Green Line Type 9 Thread

Very interesting photo (credited to the MBTA) of a type 9 pilot car at the CAF facility in Elmira, New York. It's on the bottom of page 10 of the January/February2018 Rollsign from the BSRA. Worth a look if you have access.

Re: Martin Luther King Day and that Statue at Back Bay

Saw photo only on MBTA forum, realized it couldn't be MLK. Thanks to the gentlemen here for the ID, I wondered if it was Christopher Plummer! And why?

Re: Retirements and Disposition of CR Equipment

207 was a Delaware Car outsource. How can it be that it's taken 9 whole months to get only 4 of 10 cars back from DC that only needed their 4-year inspections updated???

I will definitely check out his map, though I will be astounded if he has missed anything that I know about. :-D Oh, beautiful work on the map!
