They installed new welded rail from Mansfield to Framingham and surface and aligning.At Walpole they have new signals the size on a main line railroad.There is a set of new large signals at south walpole and on the Foxboro town line.I am not sure who paid for all this, but I am guessing the state did.The MBTA is trying to build up the commuter rail at Gilette stadium ,but the station at Mansfield ,which is close to Foxboro and is a lot faster to Boston on the NE Corridor by about 20 minutes.Foxboro has a town parking lot near Mansfield station for commuters. A Large amount of work on yard tracks has been done at walpole and the yard at Mansfield.CSX sold this line to the state for millions and the state has upgraded the Framingham Secondary to main line condition.What a deal for CSX.

Does anyone know if L010 still does the Framingham runs or if that just goes to Walpole now on Fridays at least? Not sure what it does Mondays through Thursdays.

L010 is the Readville---> Framingham RT job, usually follows #709 out of town and picks up L011's empties in Walpole on the way to FRM
L001 is the other day Readville job, works the warehouse adjacent to Readville yard, RTE 128 Ind park, Stoughton Branch (as needed)
L011 is the Walpole day job that goes to Mansfield, works the chocolate usually M W F, and Zayers (W. Mansfield) T Th

I know what the jobs are. That wasn’t the question. My question was how come I haven’t seen L010 at Framingham lately? Usually it comes around 1pm, but lately, haven’t heard it at all. Hope they didn’t get rid of it.

I've heard that it's now a night job.

I saw the train at Walpole tonight at 8:30 PM waiting for the MBTA commuter trains to clear before heading for Readville.I went by Readville around 12;30PM today ,and the 2 engines that go to Framingham were gone.I have seen them on Sundays at Walpole going to Framingham,i think they DO NOT go on Fridays.Check out MBTA schedule to get an idea when they run to avoid commuter trains.

So what’s the updated approximate time of when L010 comes and leaves Framingham? I hope it’s not a midnight thing because if it is, then I won’t be able to see it ever again. 😞

Could it have changed from Monday-Friday to Sunday-Thursday job now?

I read on public ship csx schedules that L010 is now a Sunday-Thursday instead of Monday-Friday like it usually was.

I saw L10 a few weeks ago when I got off the 4:36pm Sunday train. It departed at about 4:45pm towards Readville. So it's not a night job on Sundays, but I can't speak for the rest of the week.
