didn't find them. . .while in boston years ago, looked for el lines to ride where i would be able to get good tourist views of the city. challenging due to subway, sunken trench, and surface lines (did get good str vibe from the green). orange line was particularly noteworthy; the view was of nothing but embankment. dull, but would imagine it's very economical for their agency in terms of maintenance. rusting steel structure above the streets (chicago's) are constantly under some form of repair, not to mention slow. makes one wonder why cities would still want those structures. boston’s lines—they seemed to get from point a to point b very efficiently.
