News Library / CRRC MA

The first four uncompleted shells for MBTA Orange Line subway cars arrived at the CRRC MA plant in East Springfield this week.

Workers there are unpacking them and getting ready to begin assembly work, said spokeswoman Lydia Rivera. She expects work on completing the cars to begin in earnest sometime in the next month or so.

The cars arrived by truck in white wrapping after being shipped from China to the port of Philadelphia, Rivera said.
