Unlike all other cars used within the Boston Commuter Rail System, this PCC (President’s Conference Committee) car has been in almost continuous service on the Mattapan-Ashmont Line since 1929.
At many times in the past, the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority has proposed to replace this car with a newer more modern one. Each time, they have been met with opposition from the surrounding communities.
(Good for them!!)
I recently had the pleasure of riding on this little beauty, and what a wonderful experience it was!
Have a great week!
