Personally, I'd recommend the North Bank Bridge rather than the Gilmore Bridge. Rather than a busy road, you'd be on a pedestrian-only bridge that spans the throat of North Station a stone's throw from the lift bridges. There's no view of BET, but you do get the Zakim Bridge and the lift bridges in your photos.

IIRC, I saw 1119 with 1802 on the Worcester line on Monday.

You might as well cross the 1132 off your list, it's not in operating condition and won't be again possibly.

010 is Southside, can't remember if the 011 is still. You are correct 3247 on that pairing, still together as of tonight. IIR, I'll grab a runsheet and post the pairings of the requests you asked for
