Well, we should all keep an eye out for that LRV. There's apparently a lot of trackage to test in the new North Station, including the pocket/turnbak track and crossovers north of the station, under the FleetCenter. I would guess then that that car will be the captive "ginuea pig" for all of that until the cutover is made permanant.

Maybe it'll turn up on the lower level soon, although with the sheeting up on the fence down there it'd be hard to tell.
Wondering if I'll see the Haverhill double-tracking finished before I retire...

Wouldn't it make more sense to conduct these tests with a Type 8 rather than a Boeing???? The Boeing's, afterall, are in their last months of service.
Hoping for a rebirth of the Screamer fleet.

Yeah, but the Boeings are on their last legs -- this one's probably already been pulled from revenue service. After all, its likely to be captive in North Station till next month.
