I spoke to a senior MBTA manager last night and we talked about the Alstom K-car program. Details here:

They've stepped up the pace on the cab cars, upping the count out at Alstom to 1:1 with the trailers. 1706, 1711, 1713, 1716, 1720 are the last five non-rebuilds still roaming. 13 rebuilds are back, 6 are away in rebuild.


Heaven forbid we might actually be out of the hole at long last on cabs shortage before Memorial Day at this pace, and if Delaware Car can clear the inspections backlog on the 1600's briskly enough.

My wife was driving through Athol this morning and saw two K cars on (what I'm guessing was a) POED.

Down to only 3 non-rebuilt cabs left in-service: 1706, 1711, 1716. At rate Alstom's going now double-barreling trailers and cabs 1:1 to finish the cab fleet those 3 will be gone in couple weeks and the entire active bi-level cab fleet will be pumping out ASA. And by summer's end commuter rail will finally be at full strength on cabs for first time in years.

Also...looks like the first of the '97-era BTC-4A contract options have headed out to Alstom. 757 and 767 have cut ahead in line of 15 non-rebuild '91 trailers still in-service.
