Gary Senecal's almost-CSI shot on NERAIL of the north rail of 1 just west of the Wachusett pad (http://photos.nerail.org/s/?p=191490) sure didn't look any better during a 07-30-2011 viewing at 1015.

The other proposed "theory" is that nothing is going to 'really get better' until the Mechanicville yard rebuild is complete in the meantime supposedly NS doesn't care. I'm not saying I'm buying that just that its been said.
