Re: 2/28/18: Thank You TransitMatters for a Bold and Practical Vision

Incidentally, wouldn't you want to electrify Stoughton as well? It's only 5 miles or so of single track, isn't it? One would get extra flexibility in being able to send electrics down there as well...

Re: Kenmore Square North

The ground floor doesn't seem to have been changed too much, actually. The City Convenience entry seems to have replaced an apartment.

Re: DOT Parcels 25, 26, 27, 28 Kneeland Street

The real tragedy is that in the Fallout world One Beacon and Harbor Towerswere never constructed..... I suppose Boston deserved to be nuked.

Re: The New Retail Thread

Re: The New Retail Thread

I'm pretty sure that there was a Chili's there at one time. There was a food court on the second floor. I only recall it because I remember eating at a ?Sbarro's there once while waiting for a...

Re: Boston Properties Office Tower | 888 Boylston Street | Back Bay

No, but it is odd that all those stores are suddenly closed and walled off. The chocolate store and the game store had been open in that spot for at least a decade.

Re: Embedded Videos

Is there a "trick" to making this feature work? I made three posts including videos in the Filene's redevelopment thread. In one post they were magically embedded, in two they were not.

Re: The Orange Line Thread

Wouldn't Amtrak have some interest in this project as a means to relieve congestion at South Station? Eliminating the Needham line would open up a bunch of rush hour slots, I would think.

Re: Driven By Customer 'Service' Parte Dos

The Haverhill line map is sobering also. Was it intended to remove all the grade crossings out to Reading when it was planned to extend the Orange Line there?
