Mattapan-Ashmont MBTA Branch: PCC Spotting

Photos here:
The 1945 "wartime class" PCC trolleys that run on the Mattapan-Ashmont "high-speed branch" in Boston are the last of their kind in revenue service, and don't get nearly the amount of attention they deserve. The MBTA maintains a fleet of 10 active PCC cars, originally built and purchased by them in 1945-1946. In the 1990s and early 2000s they were brought back to their former glory with a tangerine, maroon, cream and silver paint scheme identical from when they ran on the Green Line from the 1940s to the 1970s, along with an updated version of the original MTA "map logo". They are a treat to see in action!
