What do they use the Eastern most track for now?

Occasionally in the morning when commuting in on the Newburyport / Rockport line I see a Orange line train on it.

Sometimes it's just a two car set, which I assume is not a revenue train. But sometimes its a 6 car set or stopped at Sullivan Square.

It's a test track. 0704/0705 ran on it quite a bit when they were delivered.

Malden center would not need reconfiguration. The Commuter Rail track would be the northbound.
