010 is on the North Side still so the locomotive must have been 011!

It was indeed 011, then 2 flats, then 2 K's, then the 1538 was shrink wrapped.

There is another coach being shrink wrapped as we speak and will be revealed in one month.

Tcostello (I'm sure many know his works on Flickr and YouTube) and I took lots of pics. Unfortunately I won't be able to get mine up any time soon... so keep an eye out for his work!

Ceremony itself took place inside South Station with Trans. Sec. Rich Davey, MBTA GM John Davis, Lt. Gov. Tim Murray, and others.

The coach looks great! I wish they'd done a bi-level or a whole set or a locomotive, though. I think a whole set would be a lot more powerful and moving.

The same Fallen Heroes wrap, but with different names.

I like the new Fallen Heroes wrap. And it is nice to see that they attached it to 011. I haven't been able to get a good photo of it yet, but I did get to see it up close the other day and it is nice. It is moving to see all those names on the side.

MBB cab car 1531 is at BET right now wearing a Fidelity ad. It's right next to the Fitchburg Line.

They were moving 1500 and 1531 into PM-2 at BET on Sunday so the 1500 might also get an ad!

There's a red line car wrapped in something about rice and beans or some such.

MBCR is once again wrapping coaches in the Tropicana ads. This time instead of yellow, they are orange. One number that I know so far is 1526, but there is at least one more like it(no number available).

I wasn't aware they removed the wrap already. Sure it's not the same one? Any idea what happened to the old wrap?


BTW, anyone know if they ever made that second Fallen Heroes coach?
