I still think of MBTA’s HSP-46 diesel-electrics a brand new locomotives. In fact, these have been on the roll since 2014.
Would you think of a four-year old car as being ‘new’?
The HSP-46s are certainly newerthan MBTA’s other locomotives.
Built by Wabtec’s MotivePower Industries with General Electric components, these distinctive looking machines are unique to MBTA.
In late June, I exposed this view of MBTA 2016 leading southbound train 817 as it approached its station stop at Mansfield, Massachusetts.
