MBTA Announces Plans to Improve Commuter Rail Fleet

The MBTA has announced plans to purchase roughly 38 new diesel electric locomotives and 75 bi-level commuter rail cars to improve greater Boston's commuter rail service. It's not clear how much the fleet will grow as the result of the purchase, as the MBTA hasn't indicated how much of their aging fleet they plan to retire as the new equipment is brought on-line.

More details are available from The Boston Globe and the Associated Press.
