They grow up so fast

Longer Orange Line train

Roving UHub photographer BradM spotted this six-car brand-spanking-new Orange Line train sitting above across the Mystic around 9:20 this morning. Almost looks like that thing will be ready to roll into actual service, weary Orange Line riders can only hope (you may recall the T had originally said it would get at least one all new Chinese-by-way-of-Springfield Orange Line train in service by the end of 2018).

They're so cute when they're little.



Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


Huh. It says this article was posted in 2019. But we have no new orange line trains in service. Huh. Did the MBTA lie? Must be a typo. Will hang my 2018 calendar back up once I fish it out of the recycling bin.

i only in half jest have been saying 2020 for a while now.
funny there have been no glowing reports for a while now from the T or the Governor about these trains >

"MBTA officials announced Monday that the debut of the first new train in what will ultimately be a full fleet replacement on the Orange Line has been delayed, and won’t enter service until 'early spring.'"
