Manville Yard

There are are 3 or 4 Boston “T” Comet commuter cars in Manville yard.

Does anyone know were they are going?

Just noticed this thread that may shine some light on the subject, but I have no further information....

I am just guessing that they are going to/from the Kinkisharyo railcar facility in Piscataway to be refurbished.

Thanks for the heads up Joe. Is there a public place to railfan the yard so we could take some pictures?

I’m afraid not.

At the time I could only view them if I trespassed on someone's lawn.

It was hard to see if there were 3 or 4 cars.

You can see most of the yard & the West Trenton Main from Bridge Street bridge.

I saw 8 more MBTA commuter cars in Manville yard today.

You can see them from the dead end street N Reading St.
