Blue Line Vehicles

Blue Line trains pass each other down below in this view of the gentle curve near Revere Beach, next to the last stop.  Vehicles on the line are small, necessary for passage through the old tunnel under Boston Harbor. 

The Blue Line is in the great minority of American heavy rail lines in that it utilizes overhead power collection, albeit for the outdoors part of the route.  There's lots of greenery along that stretch, and some water views; the line has a fine appeal to it.   

These cars, in the 0600 series, were manufactured by Hawker-Siddeley in the late 1970s and 1980.  There is something of a British appearance to their styling.
