Old Colony, however, only uses the 1500-series cab car MBB's because none of the 500-series blind coaches were modified with power doors. They are the only single-level, power door-equipped cab cars assigned to Greenbush, Plymouth, or Middleboro...so if the rear car on any train on those routes is a single level, it's a guaranteed MBB. If it's an all single-level consist on any line...it's a near certainty to have at least one MBB. If it's a mixed bi-level consist on any line that doesn't contain a 900-series Kawasaki blind coach...it's a near certainty to have at least one MBB.
