Fitchburg line question

Postby arthur d. » Fri Mar 24, 2017 7:36 pm

When taking the train from Shirley to Fitchburg, with Shirley being a flag stop, where is the correct place to stand in order for the train to stop? Can not find the answer on the T website.

On the platform, in view of the engineer. Give a quick wave if you feel necessary.

FWIW, west facing CPF-333 signals seem to have become approach lit after having been initially set as continuously lit. Westbound T trains actuate the lights when they enter the block east of the CPF-333 interlocking and stay lit while train dwells at the station. Not sure what happens with Pan Am eb traffic on tracks 1 and 2.
