MEDFORD - The new Orange Line cars are up and running and the old ones are heading to the scrap heap.
Flatbed trucks hauled away two 40-year-old trains from the Wellington Yard and Maintenance Facility in Medford Thursday morning. More will be taken away next week.
The MBTA said they'll be turned into scrap metal at the Costello Dismantling Company in Middleboro.
The old cars are being replaced by an entirely new fleet of 152 cars that the T calls "state-of-the-art."
