They might end up abolishing LA-2 and folding their NH Route work in with LA-3 and LA-5. Not clean/pretty, but might not be justified to continue with LA-2.
few times a year!
Wonder if this will replace LA-2 or change LA-2's work to turn at Winchester?

From there, it will fork into two tracks and run parallel to the mainline down to the Mystic River.The single track that has been put down on the construction site appears to be in active use (20 cars are on it this evening, most filled with dirt) and it doesn't look like there's going to be a second track - at least not for a while. I'm guessing that from how close the current single track is to the active work.
