Remarks & Notes 
Two of the historic Pullman-Standard PCC cars in service for the MBTA are seen arriving and departing Milton Station. These wartime PCCs were built in 1945-1946 and are in service on a section of track known as the Mattapan High-Speed Line. The 2.54 Mile loop connects the Ashmont and Mattapan neighborhoods of Boston cutting through the neighboring community of Milton. There was talk of replacing these antique cars with newer trolleys or electric busses, however, community leaders stepped in and convinced the MBTA to refurbish the existing historic cars. There are five active PCCs on the roster and five inactive units. Two of those units were damaged beyond repair in a 2017 accident. Car 3265 was recently refurbished and was the first to undergo such work.

The MBTA is very dear to me. The first trains I ever rode as a toddle to teenager were those of the "T" Here is a collection of MBTA Subway and trolley I have found on RP from the 60's thru today.
