Be interesting to see how that goes over considering the whole area was just rebuilt by the MBTA with Camp interlocking as the powered yard access. Pan Am insisted MBTA retain the Moore's crossovers - they were originally going to be removed.

There’s no place to park a long train between Worcester and the hill yard without blocking traffic. There’s a short, dumpy passing track in Clinton. Does a passing siding get built at some point if operations end up at 6 per day? I’d guess it will be 4 per day to start off and no near term added capacity, other than higher MAS on the Worcester route. But running 6 per day, I could imagine the need for a meet sometimes.They were running as many as 8-9 trains per day over the line back in the Conrail days so 6 may not be a big problem but a new passing siding sure wouldn't hurt.
