Hi, My wife Ruthe and I spent the weekend of 9/10 - 9/14 in Wellesley, MA visiting our daughter Jo and son-in-law Dave. They had a photo session on the afternoon of 9/11 (they are wedding photographers) and Ruthe was tired, so I took a walk down to the Wellesley Square station of the MBTA. Only platforms exist there, no station buildings. It was sad to see how the purple paint on the equipment had faded. I can remember shooting MBTA equipment in the late 1970s, when the paint scheme was new and the purple was vibrant.
The first 3 images are of a westbound train, the last image is an eastbound train. Power seems to face west normally.
I hope you enjoyed the photos.
