Farewell to the LRV

This is some "unconfirmed" news but I'm going to share it with the risk of being inaccurate, as it is somewhat urgent.

It has been posted over at the Railroad.net forums that the final two "revenue" trips of the Boeing Light Rail Vehicles in Boston (and the world) will be MARCH 14TH and 15TH at 11:00AM. These trips will depart Riverside station at approx. 11:00AM and run inbound and presumably back out to Riverside in regular revenue service.

I will be there, with cameras and camcorder in hand, as will probably a small group of fans. Like them or hate them, this is the end of an era in Boston transit, and if you've got the time, you'll be glad you joined in.

The thread at RR.net can be found HERE.

This is confirmed via Jonathan Belcher's NETransit roster.

"Last two revenue runs of Boeing LRVS will leave Riverside eastbound at 11:00 AM and Government Center at 11:44 AM westbound on Wednesday March 14th and Thursday March 15th"

If you can, come pay your respects to the elders of the Green Line!
