The MBTA has unveiled the new look for the new generation of Commuter Rail locomotives. Nearly 14,000 people responded to three design choices in a two-week online survey. The design chosen above got 50% of the vote. The chosen design has the largest T logo on the side- three times the size of the current logo.
You'll begin seeing the new locomotives with the new look in the winter of 2012-2013, when the first of 20 new locomotives purchased are delivered from the manufacturer, Motive Power Inc. of Boise.
The $114 million investment represents the MBTA’s first major locomotive procurement in more than 20 years.
