What's the reason for no full high-levels here? Freight?

Yeah, as discussed previously in the thread the Lowell Line is still a freight clearance route. Anderson has a full-high and Lowell has a 3-car high; both have passing tracks for freight.

Official reopening today, presumably at the conclusion of the platform work.

Today, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority General Manager Dr. Beverly Scott joined elected officials and community activists in re-opening the Wedgemere Commuter Rail Station in Winchester as a fully accessible station. Located along the Lowell Commuter Rail Line, the station improvements in Winchester create better accessibility for all customers through the installation of new ramps, platforms, and parking lot upgrades.
