I've heard of a Tewksbury St interlocking referred to before, and I don't know if it is referencing the replacement of CPF LJ (Lowell Jct) or the entirely new CPF Vale. Either one could be referenced with something better than "Tewksbury St," which isn't immediately adjacent by any means. CPF Vale was a part of an MBTA project, so if NNEPRA is referencing their own brainchild, it must be CPF LJ.

The MOW siding is west of the Wildcat Branch single track, from CPW WJ south to an electric lock. The entire siding is composed of track which formerly made up the Wildcat Branch, and on its previous alignment, too. CPW WJ and CPF LJ were replaced and upgraded. The MOW siding must be about 1,500-2,000ft long.

I don't believe so, no.

It is still single tracked and under construction. The No. 1 track side should hopefully be cleared up in the spring! Although, I'm hearing they may have to go back over to the No. 2 side... again...
