    Amtrak NEC, Downeaster, Acela, & Long Distance

    Are there any plans to speed up the Metro North section of the trip? A faster Metro North trip would make the Acela more appealing than flying into LGA, currently though it's a toss up.

    Amtrak NEC, Downeaster, Acela, & Long Distance

    I don't give a crap about the livery, I just want a nice interior, fast speeds and reliable service.

    Amtrak NEC, Downeaster, Acela, & Long Distance

    They've already built rail trails on the ROW. I don't think they'll re-purpose it in our lifetimes.

    Hotel and Residential Development | 20 Inner Belt Road | East Somerville

    205 units, nice. Hopefully they continue to build out that area. On the other hand, nearby a strip mall at 90 Washington St was closed for a proposed development, however it has sat vacant for years with no construction. Anyone know what's going on there?

    Reasonable Transit Pitches

    I doubt it's Keolis calling the shots. Keolis just does what the MBTA pays them to do.

    MLK day they run a regular weekday schedule, so i'm not sure why President's day is treated differently.

    MBTA Commuter Rail (Operations, Keolis, & Short Term)

    Andover and Lawrence do have 2 tracks but only one platform, making it a de facto single track for commuter rail ops.

    Nice another Ikon pass flight. That flight also makes sense for summer Yellowstone traffic. I hope they add a flight to Aspen too.

    There are other parts of the country, Seattle comes to mind, that are much better. I apologize for getting off topic.

    An even more frustrating hobby, waiting for transit improvements.

    New Red and Orange Line Cars

    These types of issues are very common with new trains. Biggest issue is that the old cars are beyond their design life, and new trains should have been ordered earlier. Also dosn't help that the T kept advertising the new cars, getting people excited.

    New Red and Orange Line Cars

    Looks like they're running these trains during rush hour, which is a good sign.
