Ready to spit sand.

PCC 3326, an ex "Texas Ranger" Dallas double-ender purchased by the MBTA, sits at Arborway Yard on a cold winter's day, waiting for a forecasted twelve-inches-plus snowfall. The car has been converted to a "sand car", which will deliver sand to slippery rail shortly, giving traction to the PCC wheels which will follow.
