Old Green Line trolleys never die, they get shipped to Colorado

Old Green Line trolley on the tracks again

The T recently donated two old Boeing-Vertol trolleys to the TSA's Surface Transportation Security Training Center in Pueblo, CO, where the agency is now planning to build an entire mock subway station to train federal, state and local police on dealing with train-related emergencies.

MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo says the trolleys were shipped to Denver via rail - on flatbed cars, rather than under their own power.
