BOSTON (WHDH) — The old MBTA trolleys at the Boylston stop have a new look after one or several vandals sprayed them with graffiti Monday night.
The MBTA says sometime over night the vandals managed to get behind the metal gate and tag two trolleys that are sitting on display at the Boylston T stop.
“I feel like it kind of takes away from the city. It’s really disrespectful, not a good thing,” Danny Dranoff, an MBTA rider, said.
The trolley cars are more than 50 years old and serve as reminder to the historic past of this first in the nation subway system.
Now the MBTA police are trying to track down the suspects
“I appreciate graffiti as an art not on things that are historic and landmarks for our city this is something we could have looked at for years to come now its permanently altered by modern human hands,” Danny Chamberlain, an MBTA rider, said.
Police are reviewing the overnight security footage trying to figure out how the vandals got in to the area and hopefully get a good look at their faces.
Crews will begin cleaning up the graffiti Tuesday night after the T closes and hope to have it fully restored by the time the Green Line starts Wednesday morning.
