When the time comes, folks from Seashore will inspect the cars still on the property and pick the pair in the best condition.

Anything stuck in the gap between the doors and the car body or between the doors and the guide rails may result in a door problem. The motors aren't very powerful. This is by design, since you may end up with severe injuries if someone has his fingers or toes in the gap, otherwise.

Perhaps the only way to avoid such problems is to control the crowdedness, so that passengers aren't in frequent contact with these doors.
Media report was the door would not close, they fussed with it for like ?15? minutes, delaying service, then took the train out of service. I don't know anything further.

Oh man there's a great comment on that article that I Just have to share. One commenter asked this question "Can’t they move any of these cars closer to Middleboro on tracks?" and was met with a great response, "Train tracks aren't uniformly spaced and sized. So you can't run an orange line train on commuter rail or freight tracks, and vice versa."
