There is at least one other 1500 and a 500 in that wrap. The 500 is in service North and the other 1500 was inside BET.

Coach 200 is being wrapped into the current paint scheme just like they did coach 205 a while back.

When they peeled off the Wi-Fi ad from the 200 they took a lot of the coaches paint with it. I might have a picture of the car somewhere from after they did this.

Why would they remove the wi-fi wrap? Did they uninstall the wi-fi from that car for some reason?

I saw that car a few weeks ago, and it was pretty rough looking. There was A LOT of bare metal showing, and, to be honest, it was somewhat embarrassing that they allowed it in service in that condition for any length of time. Although an actual paint job would have been nice, I'm glad to see they're at least doing something to fix up the appearance.

The wrap was coming off, so they removed it. Most of the wifi wraps are falling off. An example on why using this to "paint" the cars is not a good idea. I am sort of surprised they did not include some sort of wifi marking into the new wrap. The Commuter Rail does not have a paint facility, and paint work would need to be done off property. This is something I do not understand since every line on the T has a booth!

Coach 256 has been shrink-wrapped into the Commuter Rail paint scheme, forgot to post about this. And now several control cars have the Boston Strong banners on them. A few of them are 1531, 1633, 1641 & 1649.

Just a wrap job. Give it a year or two, and it'll be shredded to bits, looking like it's been through hell and back.
