Very interesting! I'm curious why in 1980 a green line trolley destination roll sign would say "PARK STREET via SUBWAY" - how else would a Green Line car get there?

That was a standard roll sign designation throughout the PCC era, and the MBTA shop probably just put an old PCC roll sign into the CLRVs during their visit. I presume the wording was meant to indicate that the car made stops along the Central Subway on its way to its destination. Up until the late 1950s the MTA had a number of streetcar routes that did *not* go into the Central Subway, although admittedly none of them had Park Street as a terminal.
