The Boeings may be gone, but I would like to check out the Mattapan PCC's and try to catch a rebuilt Kinki. I wonder if that hotel on the river near Lechmere is still there. I'm sure the Howard Johnsons behind Fenway is loooong gone, haha. One of my favorite memories of the hotel by Fenway was walking around the corner and up the street (stopping to get fresh roasted nuts on game days of course!) towards the Citgo sign with my Dad, and standing on an overpass with what must've been the 'Pike below, watching the purple commuter rail trains alongside the highway. As a child I remember getting a kick out of them being purple, haha.

I've stayed there before (well, back when it was a cheaper place), but those rooms have a fairly decent view of the west end of the yard. By the way, not going to be a problem catching a rebuilt Type 7 now... the challenge will be catching a non-rebuild in original paint!
