Some pics that bring me back.. Boston’s elevated Orange Line.
MBTA Orange Line at Forest Hills Station (my old home base)
Inbound train at Green St., looking south
Green St., looking inbound
Egleston Station, my stop for school
Goin over the Mystic River
In the South End. You can see the sign for St Vincent de Paul in the background.
Elevated Orange Line in Roxbury. Check out Skippy Whites, best spot for vinyl back in the day.
Pulling out of Forest Hills Station, looking from the bus yard.
The elevated Orange Line tracks (R.I.P.) being removed, looking north from Forest Hills.
The above pics are taken from NYCsubway.org. Those are just some of my favorite pics, mainly because they are of my old stomping ground. Check out more old school MBTA flics on their website.
Coz getting up in 1986 (est). Mass, Tale, and Spell tags also up. (* above 2 pics stolen from the web, forgot where)
