It was almost a quarter of a century ago that CSXT got the Boston Line, which was received in excellent shape -- CWR and 315K on the main. In the intervening years, little reformatting has been done to accommodate what wasn't even a fever-dream back at the time of the sale -- PSR and trains up to 9K'.
On this, the feast day of the patron saint of Ireland, I perhaps should be a tad less cynical, but I have trouble avoiding the thought that CSXT will offer the track to the Commonwealth for expanded passenger service so the Commonwealth will float bonds for restoring full double-track west of Worcester with strategically-placed crossovers every few miles. And yeah, that'll be kinda like the highway Big Dig in that it just might delay future bond funding for yet another Big Dig -- dropping the floor of the Hoosac. Sly folks to the South!
