Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Nah. It's great all-around practice if you can afford the very high cost of initial buy-in. But I agree that sans a ton of federal Homeland Security kickstarter to get the ball rolling via the...

Re: North-South Rail Link

Lord help me, I commented in the UHub thread on this.:rolleyes:

You can get the gist of my thinking by going there. FWIW, this (https://www.universalhub.com/comment/675183#comment-675183) is the...

If you really want to cross the streams over there, go to the T subforum and start any old post about trolley ops that intentionally mixes up the terminology "motorman" and "operator" for yuks. ...

Re: Where is....?

Something in excess of 12 years ago related to the dreaded "bus" word and bugfark Admin's reaction to it. Passed a rule on it that's still on the books, only no one still remembers what the original...

Re: Fall River/New Bedford Commuter Rail

This is rich coming after 2500 words in 4 days on the subject. :confused:

Re: Fall River/New Bedford Commuter Rail

Bull. The fact that this project induces real no-foolin' transit loss on either proposed alignment to multiple communities with existing service has been immaculately documented. Yet, if it's not...

Re: Fall River/New Bedford Commuter Rail

And that's why it's pointless to respond: I/me/mine. Not even an attempt to explain away why shitting all over the South Shore's transit frequencies and access is an acceptable answer. Just like the...

Re: Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

It doesn't make sense because jass is pulling the foul-mouthed troglodyte act again to burnish some self-notion of 'pithily contrarian' cred where all facts are tacit yet infallible by their very...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Railroad workers are divvied up into 3 unions. You get the same regardless of who's operating it.

Not-union: upper management hacks. Also not-union and very hacky whether on an outside...

Re: Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Went for an up-close look at this thing yesterday. Kind of flimsy-construction. Secured to the pavement by only 2 bolts, and made of some sort of plastic composite. Apply some hand pressure on it...

Re: Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

WTF does this even mean? Brattle Loop IS the Green Line.

Is this thread now so off its nut we're just using random word generators to vent unfocused rage?
