I'm not sure if they're actually cleared for domestic double stacks. The tallest equipment regularly run on that line is autoracks at 19'0". I also don't know how much the clearance drops when MBTA finally electrifies, and the shared trackage that is not electrified today becomes electrified.
There is a section of track in Norristown, near Philadelphia where CSX domestic double stacks run under the wire, as the line is shared with SEPTA.
This topic is interesting, as I constantly see the false claim that "doublestacks can't run under the wire" when talking about freight rail electrification. They absolutely can, the challenge for freight rail electrification at scale is bridges and tunnels, as 25kV wiring needs significantly more overhead clearance than just domestic double stacks on their own. This may influence which lines should be electrified first, most likely putting the BNSF Southern Transcon on top of the list. Lots of trains, long distance, fast speeds, minimal overhead obstructions.
