MBTA Signal Shop

From the Collection: Retro Report

Boston is home to the oldest subway in America, which opened in 1897. And some of the equipment that keeps Boston’s “T” running is almost as old. So what keeps the nation’s oldest subway running? In this co-production with Retro Report, we visit the MBTA’s Signal Shop, where workers maintain the equipment that keeps the trains on track.
