It's the new GLX II to Framingham (actually not a bad idea)Rbts Stn wrote:Thursday morning trying to exit 128 onto the Pike/Route 30/Recreation road exit around 8:30AM, there were state police holding up traffic as ahead of me in the distance I could see a Green Line train on a flatbed slowly rolling down the ramp. It got on the Pike exit (I was going to 30) and after I took my left on Route 30 towards Weston, the train was stopped on the Pike ramp to my left, silhouetted against the sky. Would have made a great photograph.

From what I have been able to see the few times I've tried to pay attention and look, I think there may be more than one car with the new design panto, but it's not something that is being universally applied to all of the overhauled cars because there are overhauled cars which still have the old pantograph. The new ones are different and kind of cool looking, and they make an overhauled car look even more like it's brand new instead of just a nicely repainted 30 year old one.
