Take the small island platform between Tracks 2 & 3 and extend it both directions to 6-car Red Line length, bumper posts at the end of the platform. Drop the trackbed to achieve the proper platform height.

What would the service be like? Would every Ashmont train go to Mattapan?
Looks to me like it would be better keeping things more or less the way they are but adding another car during the off hours to get the service less than 15 minutes between cars. Also synchronizing the cars with the Red Line trains particularly during evenings and weekends.
