Why were these numbered starting at 1025 rather than 1018 or 1020?

Probably to differentiate them from the screamers, since they had different operating characteristics, they were numbered in a recognizable series. The gap reminds engineers and maintainers that they are different.

The next stop is Washington. Change for Forest Hills Trains on the Winter St. Platform, and Everett Trains on the Summer St. Platform. This is an Ashmont train, change for Braintree at Columbia.
