“I don’t know if you’ve heard but the MBTA is letting the public choose the new trains’ paint schemes. I’d like to know which ones are your favorite.”
Yes, I did take that survey! Here’s the link for anyone who hasn’t taken it yet, and now let’s get into the ones I liked.
|The three Orange Line designs.|
Look, I’m a purist. That first one with the simple Orange line is the one I like most. The third one, although pretty cool and unique, seems to leave most of the train grey, which doesn’t seem too appealing. As for the second one, I don’t like how the stripe stops at each door. So yeah, I like the first design the most.
|The Red Line designs.|
In terms of paint schemes, the Red Line trains are exactly the same as the Orange Line ones. Again, I like the first one the most.
|And finally, the three Green Line designs.|
Um…okay, so, none of these designs really call out to me. Why does all the green paint have to be above the windows instead of under them like on the existing trains? I guess I like the third one the most, since it strikes a balance between the gaudiness of the first and the subtlety of the second, but I would prefer a design like the ones we have on the current trains. But don’t let me tell you which designs are the best. Take the survey and make your voice be heard!
