You may want to reconsider and/or re-think that one.
The current commuter rail schedule sees 170 train movements at Wachusett Mon-Fri and 28 on Sat & Sun. Two (2) RT ski trains (1 Sat., 1 Sun), or approximately 1% of the weekly train movements at Wachusett, over (at best) a 16 week ski season, cannot be considered, even by the most optimistic, as "real draw" for this fiasco.

I'm guessing a T train on the station track could use the Diverging Approach aspect to head to the Westminster layover facility at CPF-335.
Left-to-right (all signals are also distant signals to CPF-335)
Station track CPF-334 westward home signal (Aspect is Medium Approach in NORAC - correct that this is the lineup to the facility or to a stop at CPF-335)
Track 2 CPF-334 westward home signal
Track 1 automatic signal (staggered heads instead of aligned vertically).
CPF-334 is only an interlocking on track 2 and the station track.
