I'm with them on this.
What's your rationale? There's nothing historical about the Arlington Station sign. Unless the actual sign is listed on the National Registry of Historical Places, then tell these NIMBYs to take a hike.I'm with them on this.
From the Globe:
That's just not necessary.
Hang those screens on the walls inside the station and leave the signs alone.
I couldn't care less if it's on the National Registry of Historical Places or not. Designations like that mean nothing to me. What matters is that the TV screens are tacky af and don't fit the aesthetic.What's your rationale? There's nothing historical about the Arlington Station sign.

Which is... everything we have already discussed here?Here's a clip from Wikipedia.org on the future of the Ashmont / Mattapan Line;
"On several occasions, the MBTA has proposed to replace the PCC streetcars either with newer trolleys or with buses, and has met with substantial community opposition on each occasion. The FY2017-FY2021 Capital Investment Plan, approved by the MassDOT board in June 2016, allocated $9 million to the line including $3.7 million for maintaining the PCC cars. The plan also allocates $5 million for "PCC Car Replacement-Alternative Service" which will be used for future funding should an alternate form of transportation be decided upon. In 2017, MBTA began a $7.9 million project to overhaul the trollies and update the propulsion systems, but further problems such as fluctuations in power damaged the four operating trains in early 2018. On February 5, 2018 it was reported that eight more trollies were going to re-enter service in 2019, the fixes will prolong the lifespan of the trains by another 7 to 8 years. The MBTA also announced that it is studying alternatives again to running trolleys, draft recommendations are planned to be completed by the Spring."
MBTA now reporting that 300 feet of third rail was damaged.Pretty epic Red Line failure at Andrew today. Looks like a motor blew causing smoke along with windows to blow out on the train and possibly track damage. They are still running Shuttle buses between Andrew and JFK with Severe delays as of 3:45pm and have been since 9:30am.
What's he going to say??Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker is not happy with the recent derailment on the Red Line. He said that it is unacceptable yesterday.
