agreed! such a shame, for what its worth the one we rode (last photo) was all cleaned up! looks like the others had been sitting for awhile.

also check out this concrete truck on a flat car in the google street view! https://goo.gl/maps/XA3U2p5YB9T2

That's an interesting piece of equipment.  Looks like a front end loader combined with a transit mix.  Now there's something more to consider modeling.

Here are some colorful post cards that I enhanced. They are of New York State electric railways. My favorite is the Horse Shoe Curve card on the Southern Tier of New York.

West Penn Rwys Trolley at Kittanning, Pa


A good deal of strategic planning is like a ritual rain dance.

It has no effect on the weather that follows, but those who engage in it think it does. 

Furthermore, much of the advice related to strategic planning is directed at improving the

dancing, not the weather.

duh, what country for westerners.

Heh. What country? Personally, I always thought those New Englanders were from another planet altogether!

Can you say "Photoshopped"?  Lechmere (pronounced "Leech-mere") was one of my favorite MBTA stops when I was a kid.  If I recall correctly there was a huge Sears (?) building at the end of the line, which was something of a famous destination for riders.

I thought this "T" stop was closed years ago, along with the retailer, but it just came up on a (very) quick web search.

BTW, the store at the end of the Lechmere line was not a Sears, it too was called Lechmere.  ANd it WAS a destination, known throughout New England.

Bruce,

Thanks for the correction.  As I recall, the building was so tall and iconic that it could even be seen from the highway heading west out of Boston.
