Re: Massachusetts state senate backs plan to electrify MBTA Providence and Fairmount commuter lines

I'd hope that MBTA thinks outside of the box and buys FLIRTs

Why; do you have stock in Stadler Rail? And has there been a FLIRT built that can use a 48"-tall high platform?

The longest MBTA train on the lines in question are apparently seven- to eight-car bilevels and still use six-car trains on average. If something like the ACS-64 can't accelerate a train like that faster than an HSP46 (or even the Morrison-Knudsen F40PHMs), then there's a problem, but I don't see that being a problem.
