May 22, 1017 CR Schedules

Postby Diverging Route » Thu Apr 20, 2017 1:40 pm

This thread documents changes to the CR schedules effective with the May 22, 2017 revision. Per the MBTA:

Spring 2017 Commuter Rail Schedules
Please note there are no schedule changes on the Lowell, Needham, Franklin, Fairmount, Middleboro/Lakeville, Kingston/Plymouth or Greenbush schedules. These schedules are only being re-printed without severe weather train designations.


OK, I'll start. On the Providence/Stoughton line:

    Train 806 (5:45am inbound from Providence) arrives at Ruggles, Back Bay, and South Station one minute later than previously.
    Train 820 (1:05pm inbound from Providence) leaves Providence through Sharon five minutes later, and makes all subsequent stops to South Station six minutes later than previously.
    Train 919 5:50pm outbound to Stoughton) arrives Hyde Park, Route 128, and Canton Junction one minute later, and Canton Center and Stoughton two minutes later than previously.

A handful of Rockburyport reverse-peak trains had their schedules lengthened and/or shifted by 1-2 minutes.

As the topic creator said, all I noticed on the Providence line was 820's departure time bumped up 5 minutes later (from 1:00 to 1:05). I assume this is to give an Amtrak ahead of it some breathing room? Seemed like this train operated late frequently.

For Fitchburg:

403 lengthened by 4 minutes
- added 1 minute between Waltham and Brandeis/Roberts (avoiding 408?)
- added 1 minute between Concord and W. Concord (reverse commute dwell?)
- added 1 minute between S. Acton and Littleton (reverse commute dwell?)
- added 1 minute between Shirley and North Leominster (doubt it's reverse commute, is it padding, or allowing for PAS operations or... ?)
405 shifted 5 minutes later
412 shifted 5 minutes later (cf. 403)
409 shifted 5 minutes earlier, lengthened by 1 minute
- added 1 minute between Ayer and Shirley
411 shifted 15 minutes earlier, lengthened by 1 minute
- added 1 minute between Ayer and Shirley
418 lengthened by 2 minutes
- added 2 minutes between Brandeis/Roberts and Waltham (slack for the meet with 413 between Lincoln and Kendal Green?)
420 shifted up to 5 minutes earlier, lengthened by 2 minutes (cf. 411)
- added 2 minutes between Waltham and Belmont (avoiding 415?)
422 shifted up to 1 minute earlier, lengthened by 1 minute
