Instruction Car Rollsign Curtain (Type 7 Side Destination)

Instruction Car Rollsign Curtain (Type 7 Side Destination)

This sign is a portion of roll sign AH-6624-1 manufactured by Trans-Lite 10/1/96 for the MBTA. An MBTA Green Line trolley would display this sign when it was being used as an instruction car, most likely not in revenue service.

The sign shown was removed from a much longer roll sign. The entire roll sign listed all of the destinations of the Green Line LRV (Light Rail Vehicle) in which it would have been installed. Typically back-lighted with fluorescent lights, the roll sign was installed on rollers in a metal case. The lighted destination sign, in its case, was viewable through a side window of the trolley. The destinations displayed could be changed by the vehicle operator.

This sign was manufactured for MBTAs fleet of Type 7 Green Line LRVs, many of which are still in service today. Newer, Type 8 LRVs were built with electric signs. Roll signs like this will not be used again in the future. Own a piece of transit history before they are all gone!

The sign is made of mylar, a light but strong plastic film. Dimensions: Approximately 39" wide x approximately 21" tall.
