Looks like MBB cab car 1533 is out of retirement. Listed on the rail tracker app on train 604.

Saw on Dave Perry's Twitter yesterday that the 508/521 Worcester set is running a 9-double decker set. Saw that on some YouTube railfanning video on the Providence line once. Do they have an extra car laying around or something for that to happen?

So that's why we have a lot of 4 car set disasters on the North Side lately.

What's with all the 300-series coaches stuffed on the Old Colony this week? The auto-door Pullmans have virtually disappeared from their normal OC assignments all of a sudden.


I must admit, the duct tape jobs on the '87-era Bombers' fraying seat covers are quite...uh...admirable in execution.
