Very identical to the Green Line trolley E branch after Brigham Circle to Heath Street/Arborway. The trains actually run on the street, like that E branch trolley we have here, I've actually experienced it myself, when riding an Amtrak train approaching Oakland Station where it runs on street before approaching Jack London Square Sattion in Oakland, CA.

Were they coming to boston from nebraska?

No, the first four were built completely in Japan then shipped to Newark and moved via rail to Boston. The remaining coach shells will be shipped from Japan to Nebraska (or was it New York??) for assembly.

The new Kawasaki bi-levels will be constructed in Nebraska, once the shells and other pieces are received from Japan
