Remarks & Notes 
Take The Purple Line To Opening Night At Fenway. On April 4, 2010, MBTX 1074 (F40PH-2C, EMD, 3/1988) led Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority - MBTA Train 563, seen approaching the Yawkey Station on the Framingham/Worcester Line in Boston, Massachusetts. While the locomotive would later be rebuilt as an F40PH-3C by MPI 2020, a key detail to the time period is the grills across the front windows, for decades common in on MBTA's F40s. In 2019, the station was renamed Lansdowne after the adjoining street. Notable in the background is the Prudential Tower or "The Pru", stating at 749 feet. When constructed it was the tallest building in the city, but in 1976 was moved to second place by the John Hancock tower at 790 feet. The Red Sox would go on to defeat the New York Yankees 9-7 that night to the delight of the hometown crowd.
