The 1710 hit a low boy trailer hung up on a crossing in Franklin it did not belong on. An excavator was on the trailer and swung off the trailer and hit the side of the car. There is a thread somewhere devoted to that incident on here.


Here is a historic pic from Boston.com/Boston Globe of the 1301.

This is what it would look like if it were a cab car that hit that freight car in Canton! :wink:

I Know we are happy that we didn't loose 1710 when it got into a wreck back on 2006!!! But was 1710's set heading back to South Side when that happened or was it tailing???

1710 is still in critical condition, it hit a flatbed truck at a grade crossing in October 2006. It was going inbound in the morning.

It was shipped out for repairs, and returned with nothing done to it, but repairs are expected to take place when the 1990 Kawasakis get their midlife overhauls. In the meantime it has had a blue tarp over it, and looks as if it is a parts source to the other Kawasakis.

I don't think 1710 has a blue tarp I think its bluish grey, from a overview of BET on NERails.

I was told, if it doesnt get rebuilt when all the other cars from its class do, it will be scrapped to provide parts. :(

The 1523 is also the car that crashed into the bumper at South Station! It received some coupler damage, and probably slight damage to the diaphram!

You're going to argue about that?!?

Fine, I think it's more a cool gray... or maybe Carolina Blue? Wait - maybe it's hooloovoo blue?

I think that it's the T trying to drive all us Railroad.Neters crazy- They change the tarp from blue to grey every day. On second thought, we're already crazy. :P

I think it should be a yellow tarp, you just don't see much of those.

The 1065 IIRC...but that is irrelevant because there was no damage to the engine.
