Also I assume this will use the Worcester Back Bay Station, that is a lot busy main lines to cross over. The line will go from the World Trade Center and then pass by Broadway on the Red Line, then close to South Station and over to Back Bay. You could just take the Silver Line directly to South Station and a train to Back Bay. Why does that area need an overpriced one seat ride? That money could be spent much better.

You have to make a reverse move in the busy Southampton Yard, then proceed up to the single track Wye, cross the severely congested NEC/South Station leads, and then occupy a track at Back Bay for reversing.
