The new Red Line cars seem a tad cramped

Red Line pokeball sculpture in downtown Boston

Flea took a look at one of the new sculptures outside 100 High St. - just down the street from the MBTA's main operations center.

The Red Line poké ball and a similar Green Monster ball are the work of sculptor Lars-Erik Fisk, who loves him some spherical art (more examples).

Good to see some new T equipment...... beginning this week the DC Metro began putting in service the first of over 200 new cars they ordered.......... the cars were ordered 5 years ago; also the Metro started returning to automated operation; the trains run themselves the operator is there to open and close the doors.

I've actually had the thought pop into my head that traveling in a Pokeball would be preferable to traveling by T at times.

Seems unrealistic, I mean where is the person standing in front of the doorway blocking people who are trying to exit?

Far too shiny, too. You ever see a T car that clean?

Anyone else think the MBTA should pay Ellen McLain (the voice of GLaDOS) to do all the automated MBTA announcements?

For some reason these shiny mechanical spheres were the first to come to mind for me.
