Looks like one of the GP40’s, which one?
How much, if any, damage done?

Wasn’t a GP40. 1074 was the engine involved.

What I thought was weird was 1074 was the engine involved and 1703 was the cab car attached. I saw 1703 pulling out of South Station last night but didn't get to see which locomotive was leading. Could they really have repaired 1074 that quickly?

Well, this is certainly a new one.

December Commuter Rail Passes are delayed. (The plastic CharliCard like ones).

I get them through work, the MBTA sends them to the office, where we pick up. Usually around a week before the end of the month we get the following months passes.

Passes have not arrived yet and the MBTA has informed us they are delayed. They are hoping they will be delivered today, but may not be.

What is the protocol when monthly passes you pay for do not come in on time. Does that leaving you paying for commute in Monday Morning?

They probably just changed out 1074 for a different engine.

Not a simple intersection, and very bad timing.
