For more than five years, what looks like half of a Blue Line car has sat on a small vacant lot at 14 Weir St. in downtown Taunton. Its owner, a local landlord, had once hoped to turn the cast off MBTA replica into a diner of the sort that used to line the streets of the one-time silversmithing hub.
But now the lot is up for sale - recently reduced to $189,000. It's being marketed not as a convenient way into Boston but as a potential parking lot with room for ten spaces.
No word if the welcoming croc would be part of the sale:
