I cannot figure out how to edit my previous post, but as of this morning (and last night), Cedar Grove at least is not yet active.

Apparently the rest of the signs are coming up "later this month"...

Now arriving on the Mattapan trolley line: real-time countdown clocks

Passengers who rely on the aging Mattapan High Speed Line for their daily commute will no longer need to stand idly along the tracks and wonder with extreme patience whether their ride is on its way.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority announced Monday that all of the trolleys, which date back to the 1940s, have been outfitted with on-board tracking technology, allowing riders to pinpoint their precise location using smartphone apps.

And by later this month, the MBTA plans to turn on digital countdown clocks at seven of the Mattapan line's eight stops, displaying vehicle arrival times. Three of the signs are already up and running.

As of yesterday, Cedar Grove's signs are live :) Really hope they put a board up at Ashmont, too.
