Photo of PCCs still rule on the Mattapan Line
PCCs still rule on the Mattapan Line

Although apparently MBTA is considering what the long term vehicle will be for Ashmont-Mattapan High Speed Line, these days 10 "MTA" PCCs (7 operational) are sole provider of service. MTA acquired these wartime PCCs from Pullman-Standard in 1945-46 and had them rebuilt twice. Photos here were taken at Central Ave, Capen St, and Milton. And here's a link to good Boston Globe photo essay: https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/bigpicture/2016/10/21/travelling-back-time-mattapan-trolley/uLheeAadsfoL3gvFBjdnCI/story.html
