So what's up with these MBB cab cars coming out of retirement lately? NETransit has 1520 now roaming around again. Are we really still that short on Kawasaki and Rotem cab cars?

Probably fill-in's, in part, for the Kawasaki overhaul program and Rotem/Kawasaki PTC installation program.

Just out of curiosity, how long have the Retired MBB's been out of service before they were put back into service? And did they have to pass any type of inspections such as the 4 year inspections to do so?

Most of them have been OOS for 2 years. The cab cars were all expired on inspections.


Cab shortage right this moment is indeed dire enough to have to dip into the stored reserves. 1812, 1813, 1819, 1722 (rebuild), 1635, and 1528 are all OOS for carbody repairs...with that number doubling over the last month. That's screwing up the K-car rebuilds because they can't pull any of the final 3 unrebuilt 17xx cabs from service to send to the program, and it's affecting the pace of the PTC installs.

Looks like 1528 is getting repairs in house according to NETransit?

Was this a retired unit as well? Possible another MBB may be coming out of the woodworks soon.
