Longer Orange Line train

Roving UHub photographer BradM spotted this six-car brand-spanking-new Orange Line train sitting above across the Mystic around 9:20 this morning. Almost looks like that thing will be ready to roll into actual service, weary Orange Line riders can only hope (you may recall the T had originally said it would get at least one all new Chinese-by-way-of-Springfield Orange Line train in service by the end of 2018).

Earlier:
