All of the bridges along Fairmount branch have been replaced or raised to meet double-stack requirements in the last 10-15 years. Seems long-range this is being considered?
I am guessing that the Dorchester Ave. bridge is an obstacle and probably the Red Line bridge although that can be avoided with a reverse move. Major work to clear the Dot Ave bridge but it must be due for replacement soon.
Does anyone know for sure the height restrictions into Boston via the Framingham Secondary/Franklin Line/Fairmount Line and Bypass Road?
Of course we know west of Framingham was cleared for autoracks years ago.
