They had the middle of the bridge opened up when I walked over the BU bridge the other night, so assuming they're working in order from Cambridge to Boston they're approaching halfway done.

Given Norm Vigeant's photo of 12-16 ( http://photos.nerail.org/s/?p=205501 ), this may or may not be the appropriate thread to state that at 0950 on 12-17-2012, D-3 gave SRS125 to the Burncoat YL to wait for a foreman and the later to Harvard. No on-air discussion if it was for a Sperry ferry or actual work.

It was indeed a "Sperry ferry". The B&A from Worcester to Cove was tested over the weekend, and it was moving back to the North Side.

I heard him get a Form D from the D3 dispatcher to head up the Worcester Main (Burncoat to Harvard) around 10 this morning. I believe the lead unit was 1032?

On 01-09-2013 with a time effective of 0901, D-3 gave a Line 2 to MBTA 1035 between Harvard and Burncoat Street with later permission to enter the Yard Limits at Burncoat. Naturally, there was no enumeration of the rest of the move.

Just saw what looked like a hospital move going through framingham.

It had a p42 leading an NCPU, and four mbta locos, no passenger cars.

How much longer do they have to go on the repairs before the bridge is reopened?
