Charlie On MTA
Dedicated to the history of America's first subway system. Originally called The Boston Elevated Railway (BERy), it has seen many changes over the years since it's initial creation. It started off as a privately owned entity until 1947 when it became the Massachusettes Transit Authority (MTA) and managed under a government agency. In 1964, travel had expanded outside the city with the commuter rail line and the MTA was suceeded by it's current management, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA), or more commonnly known as the T.

On Friday, August 18th, 2017, myself and twitter user @transitalex, set out to set an official record with The Guinness Book of World Records. It was completed in 7 hours, 29 minutes and 46 seconds, shattering the previous records.

The record was made official on Friday, March 22, 2019.

This site is under construction. Please check back soon as more pages are being built weekly.

I have been horrible with working and updating this site, and I apologize. My goal this summer is to get this completed.


The site will include a brief bio of all the trains used in each line since 1898 as well as history and photos of many of the stations. It will also have information on upcoming historical walking tours of the stations, lines and neighborhoods that created the transit system of Boston that we know of today.
Make sure to follow me on Twitter!!
