This is important because most of the renderings place this station smack in the middle of CP-4, which likely explains the large MOW presence there recently. This will likely move the end of double track east, though it may not eliminate the single track entirely.
On the 523 outbound we waited 8-10 minutes for an inbound train. People have said "well, the distance between the two signals is so minimal" that the track work isn't important.
Then explain the picture to me that I pulled from the live tracker website. Why were we waiting for a 15 minute late inbound train that was near watertown? Why wasn't that train held for us so we can get out of Boston. grrr

Anyway. the Harvard tracking app shows the inbound 15 minutes late. Why can't they hold these trains at the cross over in Weston until we get past Boston Landing? argh.
