Better start getting pictures of the cars still in the original green scheme. The only ones left are 3663, 3669, 3676, 3680, 3683, 3686, 3687, 3688, 3692 and 3696. I actually had the 3669 on my Heath Street inbound this morning.

I believe 3693 is also in the original green and hasn't been overhauled. I'm not sure what it's fate is going to be though.

I'm talking only about cars that are in service.

I've had 3686 multiple times recently. I never realized how bad it looked.

With 3663 prep to ship now, we're down to 9 cars in the original green scheme. I got a ride on 3683 yesterday, which looks better than some of the others.

31 overhauls are in service now with 3632 accepted. I rode 3662 yesterday, which is one of the newest cars. Cleanest car I've been on in a long time.

So, the same company that is having difficulty overhauling Type 7's is building Acela replacements?

In the last week or so, 3618 has returned, 3604 and 3649 have entered service, and 3663 has left for Alstom.

3683 is now being prepped for Alstom. Another original green car bites the dust.
