Rosemont extention?

Postby Rockingham Racer » Thu Feb 03, 2005 8:58 pm

What ever happened to the addition of service from Haverhill to Rosemont? There's a crossover there, Rosemont used to be on the map, but don't know if it's still there.

Isn't that cross-over only used for turning Hverhill trains for the return trip to Boston?

The crossover is used to turn MBTA trains. Most of the time, they prefer to turn at Hall (Haverhill).

Where is Hall interlocking exactly, MP B36? Or somewhere in that area?

Hall is not an interlocking. It's a facing point (with the current of traffic) handthrow crossover just barely east of Haverhill Station. In fact, I think
you could spit at it from the eastern end of the platforms!

Rosemont, while planned to be an interlocking, is still handthrow.
Signals are up, but turned to the field.
