Wonder why they didn't install a second switch on the CSX track when they put in the other one? Maybe this is actually going to be a siding for a business being built inside the "wye"? They don't really need a runaround here since they can do that in Milford Center which will be interesting to see.
looks like the siding will be sandwiched between the G&U and CSX mains.
It's aimed like it will tie back into the CSX line further south (toward Bellingham.)
I wonder how far south it will go before it ties back in?

Does B722 drop typically inbounds to G&U from Q436 on its way to Worcester and then pick up outbounds for Q437 to Selkirk on its return east to Westborough? The reason I ask is on Tuesday 6/16/20, B722 ran west through N Grafton with a short consist without stopping at G&U at around 2PM.I don't know for sure, but the switch for the G&U off the Worcester Main is trailing point eastbound. So the eastbound trip is likely when they work the G&U. Cars bound for Selkirk are then hauled east before being sent back to west.
