Thanks Rob. Another nail in the railfans' coffin. This is the same problem as on the new Blue Line cars, right? Now, do the even's and odd's always face the same way like on LIRR, or is it mixed so you can catch an odd # car in both directions?

Thats right, the new 0700s also have the Evac-Chair on even cars while some odd cars, their RFW was made blurry.

Makes you wonder why they even build them with windows in the cab partitions.

Rob you didn't say, do the even's and odd's always face the same way or do they mix them directionally? If they all face the same way like on LIRR then we could only ever see in one direction, right?

All MBTA cars (married pairs) face different ways, its the train lengths that could be different. Example: front of train-01857/01856-01842/01843-01875/01874-rear of train

Okay, thanks. I'm surprised they don't face them all the same way on the Red Line at least. I guess I'm used to LIRR where everything "even" is east and everything "odd" is west. Even on the Blue Line you'd think they'd want the uniformity of direction, even if the whole train "spins" at Bowdoin on each trip.

There is no need to have them face a certain way. Each maintenance facility has a loop to turn equipment if needed.
