Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

They could always move the proof of payment machines that were installed all along the D branch and never used. Might need to be dusted off.

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

You realize I made a one sentence comment about how horribly depressing that render looks right?

You can justify it all you want. It looks like shit.

Plant a goddamn tree.

Re: Amtrak / Regional Rail Discussion Thread

This is true for American stock, but I was actually thinking about older European trains, like older Talgo models.

Re: T construction news

Since Worcester is the end of the line, and its not like Amtrak is blowing through at 150mph, why not just let people cross the track at grade?

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

This is a good example of what I mean when I say I am skeptical it is just being more cost cutting.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Is there anything in the current MBTA management and MA governance that makes you think it's a brand new day in moving projects forward?

Usually, getting out of doom and gloom requires major...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I think its easy to hide stealth service cuts with this kind of thing. Obviously, the MBTA is infamous for "temporary suspensions" of the A and E branches.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Most likely, MBTA will do what WMATA did, where "rip off the bandaid" became "business as usual".

After a decade of "getting serious about maintenance," WMATA customers continue to enjoy weekend...

Re: Seaport Neighborhood - Infill and Discussion

I specifically said western sprawl cities.

Re: Foxboro Weekday Service Pilot

False.
