    Speaking of the E branch that runs from Tufts University to Heath St via Northeastern University since December 12th, 2022

    Think of the Green Line as the US version of Frankfurt am Main U-Bahn which uses RMV tickets like the Niddertalbahn

    B,C,E are the only ones that run on the street though heath street is the last actual trolley that runs with traffic here in the northeast it's cool but also slightly dangerous but it be cool to see

    In what do mean to explain in detail they're all exceptionally great routes Providence/Stoughton is a very straight forward route and while I've ridden it many times it was cool to actually do the route but also very boring to do the others actually show how the mbta really made each line unique to how it applied to its passengers plus the scenery is very diffrent. So I can't just pick one they're all interesting

    Explain in detail such as length, rolling stock, service pattern if you can find it, a map maybe. If they're all interesting, you can do a detailed suggestion for each one or you can pick one you really want whichever is easier

    So for most of the commuter rail trains the mbta use HSP46 Models and around 40 of them which are all used via by South Station (the locos in the route currently are there old locos that are used for shunting passenger cars around and are primarily only used at the Pawtucket yard, South Station yard, and North Station yard but as I said only few still work on the North Station routes

    Coaches
