As of right now the new train set isn't running on the Red Line, nor are any of the new cars running on the Orange. It's clear this was nothing more than a quick publicity stunt just to say that they met their target of going into service in 2020.
On a normal weekday you can find the 3 sets of Orange Line cars out and about. For awhile there was a new OL set either as the 1st or 2nd train out of Oak Grove. I've been on holiday since the 21st so I am not sure if they are keeping that pattern. I got 1414 last night at about 18:15 at Back Bay NB.
As for the Red Line set as far as I know there is only 1 set (1900-1905) in the house. So I do agree that was a publicity job. The major problems as I have heard a 50-50 split between QC issues and COVID issues. If COVID did not occur we would be harping on the QC issues.
