the 1056 and the 1062 are the 2 units painted in MassDOT paint currently. The 1062 needs its HEP unit completely replaced, believe it went down to Area 52 Tuesday

So uncomfortable.Cheap foam cushioning breaks down after 10-15 years even when lightly used. I'm assuming that's what happened because the MBBs were very comfortable when new.

Is this a test/rescue train or something?Been a busy summer, but what you probably saw was a set returning from dropping off an engine at Davisville, RI
