755 is going to be the next car sent out to Alstom. First one since I believe the 1720 this past summer.

Saw 1706 back in service this morning at south station. Couldn’t snap a picture unfortunately.

Is it in service just for the day or is it good to go? The MBTA mentioned that they are using every car in service today for the Patriots parade. Does that include the Kawasakis that were in testing, and if so, would they go back into testing after today?

I saw 1706 last night. It got a big assignment out of the gate, and was put onto one of Providence's 8-double car set (it did have 1815 attached behind it though).

Also, it looks like 723 has returned and is now in testing.

I'm guessing this is coach 755 heading west on Pan Am freight POED at South Royalston on Monday 2/4/19. I though it odd that the MBTA double decker was placed as car #6 in the consist with most of the train tonnage on its drawbar, as opposed to being placed on the rear of the train trailed by a single car hosting the EOT.

724 is also back in service too.

What's the deal with 757 and 767 remaining in testing? Looking at the web archive of NETransit, they've been in testing for quite a long time now. Are they waiting for the 700-749 series to completely finish before releasing these two?
