It's currently at the S&I off the set.

What do you mean it’s at the s and I?
  by MBTA3247
 
Servicing & Inspection. Every train set is scheduled through the S&I bays at either Southampton St or BET at least once a week for cleaning, etc.

That makes better sense! Thanks for explaining!

The building in your photo is the S&I building. The north side S&I is part of BET.

I don't think I've ever seen a picture of the S&I building. Was that built by the New Haven?
  by MBTA3247
 
No. All of the current facilities at Southampton St. were built by Amtrak or the T.

Has anyone seen 1065 find a new set? Didn’t think they would take that one off quickly.

Had a mechanical failure from what I understand...

Saw 1065 this morning on a set with 1813 as the cab.

I hear that excuse from the Mbta way to many times because it happens often. Nothing to do with what you said.

1026 testing in Erie Soon !
  by JacobKoppel
 
1051 was testing in mid July
1064 was testing in mid August
1025 was testing in early September
And now 1026 will make it out onto the test track in October.

Those units testing over the summer (1051, 1064, 1025) are not showing Erie.

1067 is on Middleboro outbound track with no horn or bell. I have been told the horn and bell were taken off to prevent theft. 1067 is also not showing up for its westward run to Erie.
It might wait for 1029 to get down to Middleboro to head west.

1029 is on an extra from Readville tomorrow for Middleboro.
1066 is coming to Readville on the same extra.
I don't show anything out of Erie.
