Sketch of what will be my next piece – a beaded replica of a 1946 Pullman Standard ‘post-war all electric’ trolley car. Here in Boston, we just call it the T. Wanna go for a ride? 🙂

  1. >It really is a great idea and cool subject. I can’t wait to see more of it. I did a post of the America’s first Subway a while ago. How big is it going to be?

  2. >Thanks for the comments! This will be a challenge, that’s for sure, but I believe it will actually be very similar to my blue bus…Jay, you are right. The Green Line train is never fast. LOL. And, I’m sure there will be some Red Sox fans on board! 😀

  3. >I grew up in New Hampshire, not far from Boston, but my parents are city-phobic and I rarely got to go to the big city. I remember feeling as if I had “arrived” when I was in my early 20s and would take the bus to Boston, then hop on the T to meet a friend. So you’re gonna do the Green Line, eh? Any Sox fans on board?

  4. >Lovely Project!When I saw your post, the song that came to my mind was one of my favorite Kingston Trio folk songs, “The MTA.” So, LB, in honor of your new project I shall post “The MTA” later today in my multi-subject blog post.
