On the way home last evening I noticed that the track gang has laid new ties and have begun the re-railing process. It went from Community College to about halfway to the flyover. If they keep pace, they should make it to the flyover or on to it.

Also the slow order on the OL between Sullivan and Community College on the south bound side has been lifted.

The track gang is now just south of Assembly Station. The new trackage is on top of stone ballast and it hasn't be aligned and tamped. On the Charlestown flyover some of the new trackage has some kinks in it. Get out the torsion beam tamper! Also the third rail hasn't been installed either.
