Which unit is the one that has been outside BET for months (maybe years at this point) then. I thought that was 1827

Update:

Cars 1828-31, 1834-41, 1843-44, 1849-50 are all in service now
Cars up to 1854 are on property.
Cars 1832 and 33 I believe are in Readville or Rochester.
Car 1842 is ???.
Cars 1852-54 are in Rochester
All other not in service cars are scattered around the T's yards.

Doors are having major electrical problems opening and closing, as they don't receive the signals well.

The cars' reliability has dropped over the past few weeks, with 10 or so just sitting in Readville

So 1050, I've officially read all of the rotem forum. What is your honest opinion about them buying from rotem again?

No. Only double deckers have them, the 900 kawasakis don't work with the traction interlock, and the Rotems' doors are electric instead of air. They took a proven method and made it not work.

1851 has officially began service today. Saw it on the tracker for greenbush that left at 5:15PM.

864-866-1845-1847 are/were in Framingham. A least one of them got tagged. A contact said their destination is oddly enough "Selkirk" 12/15! Anyone know if they are still in Framingham?
