Mattapan Yards.

A PCC "Texas-Ranger" and a loaned snow-sweeper from the Seashore Trolley Museum (x-EMStRy, x-3rdAvRy, x-TTC) share storage tracks at the end of the "Mattapan High-Speed Line" at Mattapan Station. At this time, the "Texas Rangers" were not used as double-ended cars here, as the High Speed Line has a loop on both ends. Not requiring end changing, one set of pole and retriever was removed, and the cars essentially became single-ended cars. This line is the only active trolley line that goes through a cemetery (Cedar Grove in Dorchester).
