If anyone wants to help see bright shiny 01450/01455 Red Line cars at Seashore. Please contribute. There has been a small group making these cars operational once again.

Holy crap, that OK Cola ad takes me back. That's almost as special/rare as the units themselves!

Through the hard work of a dedicated bunch of guys, the 01400s made their grand operational debut last weekend at Rapid Transit Day at Seashore! While the outsides looked a little rough, the insides cleaned up perfectly! Crowds were genuinely excited to take a ride in the commodious Bluebirds! They took two back to back trips filled with eager fans. Great to see the Bluebird Revival at Seashore !! Major Kudos to the crew up there !!

Reason: Redbirds are from New York. 01400s are Bluebirds.

I second what BowdfoinStation said. For me it was after a 40 year hiatus, last having ridden them in 1967 to a summer job at Central Sq. Cambridge. Interestingly at STM was the first time I had ever ridden them in the red/white color scheme.
