They showed the whole line in green but had the suspended notice and the black dashed line for the 39 bus. In those years the 39 was actually the substitute trolley: you paid subway fare going inbound and nothing going out above ground, and the there were free transfers at Copley in both directions.


While I don't think any SWC Orange Line stations still show the E going to Forest Hills, plenty of the maps at E line stations do. IIRC, it's a hollow line past Heath St, with the black dashed line for the 39 bus.

Many of the OL stations from Chinatown to Forest Hills have the older maps with the Arborway connection at Forest Hills and still show the New England Medical Center station name.
