The last cars delivered on their own wheels via rail road for Boston was the Blue and Orange Line Hawker Siddley cars. But the LRV's were also delivered via rail on flat cars and off loaded with a ramp. Now a days all new transit equipment are trucked in usually by Silk Road Transportation NY.
Were the 01700s shipped by rail from Thunder Bay (UTDC) or trucked?
