So, is the old board gone or not?

1- Scroll Up with your mouse
2- Look with both eyes to big picture taken today that clearly states the answer which is overly obvious

An employee newsletter from MBCR reports the board has been purchased by an artist in Miami. He plans to turn it into an art installation. Here is the site for the artist: http://www.sanchezcalderon.com/

That link doesn't seem to be working for me sery. I get a "Page cannot be found" message.

Is there any word on what's going to happen to the mini Solari boards above the doors to each track at South Station. They're all just hanging there unused. I sure hope they eventually put those up for sale like they did with the big one, because one of those would actually be small enough to take home. :-D

I saw the smaller boards still up over the track "gates" last week... to tell you the truth I don't remember them working too well (if at all) when I would frequent SS 1996-1998. They would be a cool "buy" for railfans - if you could manually scroll through the destinations. I'd get one if they went for a reasonable amount of $.

Also nice to see giant ads for Vermont finally replacing the IPod ads. Too bad there wasn't a direct train from Boston to Vermont and the service could really be marketed with the ads.

I recently noticed that MBTA replaced MBCR as the carrier. Anyone know when this happened?

Because MBTA is the carrier! MBCR is just the operator.

Today the solari boards at North Station kept making the "number flip" sound over and over and over -- nonstop!

I noticed that yesterday (Thursday) as well. Time to reboot the system...
